|SIFE offers fundraising opportunity for student organizations|
“Hot Perks” is a coffee service located in Gamble Hall. Four years ago, a student organization named Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) began Hot Perks with the intent of helping student organizations raise funds. The idea is students helping students.
Over four years many lessons have been learned and the business model has evolved to best suit the interest of students. Open five days a week, students operate Hot Perks to raise money for their organization. SIFE supplies equipment, inventory and guidance as members of student organizations run the small business. These student organizations serve coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and an array of breakfast foods to the students and faculty on campus.
The student organizations that operate Hot Perks earn a large portion of Hot Perks’ profit in return for their labor as well as basic knowledge of what it takes to run a small business.
SIFE guides student organizations through completing a transaction, keeping track of inventory, customer relations and every other step along the way.
Please consider Hot Perks as a fundraising opportunity for your student organization this year. For more information or to schedule a time for your organization to operate, contact Brianna Burggraf at firstname.lastname@example.org.
