What does Fundraising do?

The Fundraising Committee plans and hosts events to raise funds and help create a financial foundation for other events conducted by SWE. Our major events include: SWEet 5K Run/Walk, Memorial Stadium Football Concessions, and Trivia Nights.  We also plan pie sales and holiday fundraisers.  We welcome you to join us for any of these fundraising activities!  In addition, we take care of selling SWE apparel and office food.  If you would like to join the Fundraising Committee or volunteer for these events, please email Vera Liu at

Events & Activities:

Earth Day Trivia Night
SWE Fundraising partners with Students for Environmental Concerns (SECS) for Earth Day Trivia Night to learn and promote sustainability and conservation of our environment. This event offers an opportunity to celebrate mother Earth, contribute your environmental efforts, fundraise for SWE, and compete for a grand prize! 

Football Concessions
Volunteering to help out the football concessions stand is a great way to become more involved with SWE and meet new people! It is also a vital source of funding for SWE Illinois. No previous experience is required and all are welcome! Free admission to the stadium and free food for all volunteers. Contact Nupoor Gandhi at to get involved. 

Pi Day Sales, Valentines Day Grams, SWE Apparel Sales and much more
SWE Fundraising is always looking for new and unique products to sell to SWEesters, like a lovely bouquet of chocolate roses or a delicious pie. 

Community Day Coupons
SWE sells coupon booklets for the Bergner’s Community Day Sales event.  We sell person to person and at Bergner’s up to the day of the event.  The coupons cost $5, and all the profits from the booklets sold go to SWE.
