The Student Union can annually allocate operational grants for its organisations which are intended for supporting regular organisational activities. However, the purpose of the operational grant is not to finance all expenses caused by organisational activities but organisations are expected to be active in funding their own operations by collecting a membership fee, for example.
Allocating the grant is primarily based on the activities of the organisation which are evaluated based on the attachments delivered with the application. In addition to activities, the number of members, the management of finances and the need for support are taken into account. The Finance Board of the Student Union annually approves the conditions for allocating and using the operational grant.
The operational grant is applied by filling the application form "TAHLO" (= abbreviation for Toiminta-Avustuksen HakuLOmake, application form for operational grant) at tahlo.hyy.fi. If you have lost your username or password, contact the specialist for organisational affairs. The deadline for the application is Feb 28.
Documents required for the application are
-Plan of actions 2018
-Profit and loss statement 2017
-Balance sheet 2017
-Auditor's report 2017
-Report of activities 2017
-Calendar of past activities 2017
Model documents for what these documents should look like can be found here: http://wiki.hyy.fi/index.php/Avustuksia_koskevat_mallidokumentit
Additional complementing documents can be attached to the application, like plan of environmental actions or equity plan.
