Recommended Cash and Inventory Procedures
Cash handling and inventory control are two high-risk areas for any organization. Student organizations are no exception. As such, the following guidelines have been developed to assist student leaders with establishing controls to reduce the risk associated with cash handling and inventory.

A book of additional funding sources and possible vendors to sponsor is available at the Student Organization Resource Center office on the 3rd floor of the Memorial Union.

Note: Bake sales and raffles have several restrictions by ASU and the State of Arizona, respectively. It is recommended that your group avoid these types of fundraisers.
