Gift Card Policy
When student organizations receive gift cards as prize giveaways from local restaurants or bars for free parties, bar specials, or anything which may involve alcohol, the Student Activities Office must be informed immediately. Prizes which may be used to consume alcohol are not permitted since they involve considerable liability. The Student Activities Office will work with the student organization to determine if a substitution may be obtained from the establishment which donated the prize.
When student organizations give gift cards purchased with University funds as prizes, they must advise the Student Activities Office and have the gift card prize recipient complete and submit a Taxable Gift Card Authorization Form which is available from the Student Activities Office.
