Collection Box Policy

Collection Boxes, Charity Boxes, and Fundraisers

It is the intent of the W.E.B. Du Bois College House always to provide maximum service to the residents of the House. This includes making space available to outside groups for collections and charity fundraisers. We ask that groups who wish to place a collection box in our lobby adhere to the following policies below:

  • You must receive permission from the House Director at least two weeks before the collection.
  • Charity Drives and collection boxes are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to approval by a House Coordinator.
  • Collection boxes must be clearly labeled and large enough to hold the items requested but not so big as to create a blockage to the thoroughfare.
  • Only one collection/charity event may occur in the W.E.B. Du Bois College House at a time.
  • The W.E.B. Du Bois College House reserves the right to cancel or deny a collection box/charity request at any time.
  • Collections may last no longer than two weeks but may be approved for shorter times than two weeks.
  • Collection boxes must be emptied regularly and emptied by the individual/group hosting the charity box.
