GAPSA Finance Associations Council (GFAC)

GAPSA Finance sponsors recurring advisory sessions of the GAPSA Finance Associations Council (GFAC). As part of GAPSA's outreach initiatives, in Finance 101, we will discuss budgeting, fund applications, best practices, and other funding questions for graduate and professional student organizations at Penn. Learn more about GAPSA’s academic event, student group event, Synergy, GAP, and discretionary funds.

If your group is interested in GAPSA funding, a member of your group must attend at least one GFAC Finance 101 session and be certified by GAPSA Finance before applying for funding in each funding round.

To reserve a seat, kindly RSVP if you or a member of your organization will attend. We welcome questions in advance to make for a more productive discussion. Please email gapsa.finance@gmail.com with RSVPs and feedback.
