Raising funds for Nepal Quake Relief Contact David Coldwell [email protected] or Julia [email protected] The Budget Process It is extremely important that you plan your spending throughout the year. Be aware of how much money you have in both your main and suspense accounts. Consider how much money you require for events and equipment throughout the year. If you require further funding, plan fundraising activities before you apply to the development fund. The treasurer is responsible for keeping up to date with the accounts.

How do I access the money? Invoices If the amount you need to pay a company is too much for someone to pay up front, then the supplier should invoice directly to GK Unions for payment. 1) Please ensure the companys bank details are on the invoice so we can make the transfer electronically from your society account to them. 2) Please also ensure that the invoice is addressed to [Sport/Society Name] c/o GK Unions. (We cannot accept invoices addressed to the University of Kent because we are a separate organisation). 3) If the invoice is a Pro-forma, please ensure that this is highlighted at the time of submission to ensure that payment is prioritised.
