Can I get a quick over view about giving?
There are principles in the bible that show ministers of the gospel should be paid by the gospel (learn more by reading next question, Is raising support biblical?) . Two categories of people that fall under that are pastors who are paid by the people they serve and missionaries who are supported by others that aren't directly receiving service from them.

Chi Alpha workers are missionaries. We get to rally together a team of people who provide prayer support and financial support to further the proclomation of the Gospel on campus.
Is raising support Biblical?
Yes! Paul says, the Lord has commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel (1 Cor 9.14). There are several examples of this being practiced in Scripture. Here are some examples:

Jesus' ministry was funded by some of those who heard Him (Luke 8.1–3) and He taught the disciples to rely on others while ministering (Matthew 10.5–15).

Paul asked the Roman church to financially support Phoebe, one of the ministers at Cenchrae (Romans 16.1–2).

Paul himself received support and was grateful for it (Philippians 4.10–20).

What about Paul's tent making days?

Paul did not always support himself by making tents.That was the second‐best option for him. See Acts 18.1–5, where Paul began by making tents and quit as soon as he was in a spot financially able to do so. See 1 Corinthians 9.1–18, where Paul's whole point is that the Corinthians owed him support. He concludes the letter by telling them that he hopes to stop by and that he hopes they will provide for him to finish his journey in 1 Cor 16.5–6. In Romans 15.20–24, Paul asks a church he has never visited before to fund him on his journey to Spain.

Paul teaches in Galatians 6.6 that Christians are obligated to provide for the needs of ministers.

The apostle John encouraged his friend to support a crew of missionaries in 3 John 5–8.

The whole Levitical system in the Old Testament (the Levites were ministers) is predicated on the financial support of ministers by the rest of God's people (Numbers 18.21–24 is a representative example). See Nehemiah 13.4–11 for how outraged Nehemiah was that the Levites had to go earn wages in another fashion.
    Why doesn't the church or denomination pay you?
    The church is people! So, by raising support the church is paying us...but really?

    It's a scalable system for the denomination. Each new missionary is required to raise the funds necessary for their own ministry. We can always produce more missionaries, no matter how many we have because there's no fixed allotment that all the missionaries have to compete for.

    Raising support requires that missionaries build a network of relationships which gives access to more resources and more people with different perspectives, skills, and giftings. This allows the Gospel message to go further then it ever could by just the missionary going alone.

    Many missionaries have become missionaries through being in contact with another missionary. Support‐raising forces missionaries to develop relationships that ultimately result in the production of new missionaries.
