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: SWE 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 Krishna Patel at

Events & Activities:

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 Krishna Patel at to get involved.


SWE holds an annual 5K run/walk every spring to raise funds for our organization, promote fitness, and have fun! Get involved by volunteering at this event, or sign up to participate. Prizes are given to the winners, but fun is had by all!

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 SWEsters like a lovely bouquet of chocolate roses or a delicious pie. Let us know what you would like to see!
