Wolverine Consulting Group
What is WCG?
Wolverine Consulting Group provides consulting services and start-up funds for student organizations on campus. Our mission is to aid these groups in achieving their full potential by offering consulting in a couple of broad areas (that we hope to continue to expand) such as finance and fundraising, leadership and organizational structure, and marketing and brand management. WCG allocates funds directly to organizations on a non-reimbursement basis, as start-up costs and for extraordinary circumstances when it is not practical to wait for reimbursement.
Are you a new organization seeking funding?
If you or someone you know has started a new organization in the past year or are interested in starting one, WCG would love to connect with you and help your organization with start-up funds. If you or your organizations are seeking funding from Wolverine Consulting Group, sign up for a consultation here!
We are always here to help new organizations with marketing, leadership structure, and more! For funding application process and WCG services, click here.
*Note: the last day for consultations with WCG is Wednesday, April 13th, and the last day to email your funding request form to WCG is Sunday, April 17th.*
Meet with Us
First student orgs need to schedule a consultation with WCG. During these consultations, we would want to get to know your student organization better and understand all your needs for the upcoming year.
Once your organization gets approved funding, you must sign a funding agreement form. Once the form is signed, the transferring process of your award to your SOAS account begins. The transfer isn’t instantaneous. Please allow some time before you receive your fund.
After the consultation, you will be followed us via email with resources and next steps regarding what we discussed during our meeting. If you are seeking funding, you will receive a funding request form where you list the items your fund will be used upon, their cost, and their purposes. If you seek other services at WCG, such as marketing, you will be connected with a consultant on specific tasks.
For Large Funds
Organizations that claim more than $1,000 in a semester from any source of CSG funding must complete the Bystander Intervention Training that we offer. Please visit csg.umich.edu/bit for more information. Right now, the training is not yet available, so you must agree to complete it in the future before claiming your award.
Once you filled and returned the funding request form, the committee would review your request and decide on the approved amount of funding.
Once your organization receives funding, you need to report how you spent their funds to WCG once all your funds are spent by the end of the semester during which they were awarded.
