Support from OPIRG

Do you want OPIRG McMaster to be a part of your event? To co-sponsor? Do you need help with promotion? Need a room booking? Have a plan that needs support? If you are a campus or community group, then you are at the right place.

We support research and action in a variety of forms, including skills development training and organizing support. We also set aside funding to support other campus and community initiatives. If you think your event is in line with OPIRG McMaster’s principles, follow the steps below to request support. 

STEP ONE: Read our Support Granting Policy here and/or our Room Booking Policy here.

STEP TWO: Once you’ve read the appropriate policy, please fill out our Application for Support form (linked below).

STEP THREE: You may be required to make a brief (>5 minute) presentation to our Board of Directors. After the meeting, you will be notified by a staff or board member if your support application is approved or denied.

STEP FOUR: Once your event is complete, fill out the Event Report form (linked below) within 30 days to report back to us on how it went.
