Marketing and Advertising

There are a wide variety of ways to advertise your club's events and build membership:

  • Posters/flyers: Use club funds for posters printed by LBCC's Print Center, or ask Student Life & Leadership staff about making copies in our office. Posters/flyers must include the ADA accommodations statement (above).
  • Electronic slides: SL&L staff or the SLC Communications Director can help you create a slide for the monitors around campus.  If you want to draft your own, it must be in landscape format with approx. .5" margins. Keep the amount of text minimal and large!  **Please ask about the use of graphics.**
  • Sandwich boards: Student Life & Leadership (Forum-120) has sandwich boards available for check-out, as well as rolls of color paper and other sign-making materials for your use.
  • Google calendar: Contact SL&L staff about posting your club's meetings and events to the Student Events & Activities calendar, which feeds into LBLive.
  • LBLive app: Download, register and post to the Student Feed, or communicate within your own club. Student reps and advisers are invited to become administrators of their own club feed--contact SL&L staff if interested.
  • Club web page and/or Facebook page
  • Chalking: Chalk drawing is only allowed on horizontal surfaces exposed to the weather. Stand where you want to chalk, and look up. If you’re looking directly at the sky—not through a skylight!—you’re good to go.
    OK to chalk here:                                        Not OK to chalk here:
    Sidewalks                                                   Covered breezeways
    Courtyard                                                   Interior stairs
                                                                      Walls
    Student Life & Leadership always appreciates knowing when your group would like to do chalk messaging, so please provide a Club Event Registration form to the office. See Campus Safety, SL&L staff or your Student Leadership Council with any questions.  Remember: Want to chalk? Look up!
   

Food and Fundraising Information

The best place to learn about fundraising is in LBCC's Foundation office, located in Calapooia Center 105. Foundation staff are happy to visit with you and help brainstorm viable fundraising options for your club.

When soliciting donations from local businesses, it is critical you make contact with the LBCC Foundation ahead of time. Our college has existing relationships with many companies in the area, so it’s very important you check in with them prior to approaching any local business. The Foundation must also be kept informed of all donations of products, money or services, solicited or otherwise.

Please note that although a bake sale may seem like a quick-and-easy fundraiser, you may not sell food prepared at home:  it must be prepared in a kitchen certified for commercial food prep by a professional or someone with a Food Handler Card.  One option is to sell Krispy Kreme Donuts. Another alternative is to purchase prepackaged baked goods locally, then repackage them (under supervision of someone with a Food Handler Card, of course!) and sell to raise money.
