Finance and Operations; OUR Clemson

FY25 vending machine revenue requests open through February 16


Every item purchased from a campus vending machine has the potential to benefit your department or organization. 

Each year, a portion of Clemson’s vending machine revenues help fund activities not normally supported by departmental operating budgets. Any University department or recognized organization may request funds for specific activities that align to the University’s mission and make an impact to our community. 

Vending funds will not be allocated to supplement operating budgets or alcoholic beverages, and blanket funding requests will not be considered. According to the Budget Office Policies and Procedures Manual, “priority will be given to local activities that enhance the intellectual and cultural life of the community.” 

Vending Request Web Application

  • Requests can be submitted up until 4:30 p.m. February 16.
  • Requests should include itemized dollar amounts requested along with a summary explanation of the intended use of funds and impact to community.
  • Requests from departments will be communicated back to each Budget Center Business Office via Smartsheets for final approval.
  • Requests from student organizations should be channeled through Student Government and then communicated back to the Student Affairs Business Office for final approval.

Funds allocated in a fiscal year must be spent during that fiscal year. Any unspent funds will be returned to the Vending Committee account by fiscal year-end.

Budget Center Business Officers will receive an email informing them whether the requested funds were approved or denied.
