District Fundraising - 7231

The District's ability to offer diverse, quality educational programs and experiences for students depends in part on the ability to secure reliable and supplemental sources of funding. The District recognizes that it needs a balance of state, federal, local and nongovernmental funds, and the District is seeking additional funding sources in order to preserve and to establish important District programs and educational opportunities.

To preserve and to establish District programs and educational opportunities, the Board authorizes fundraising activities and fee-based programs where such programs: (1) promote K-12 education; (2) provide educational experiences for students; and/or (3) address local funding obligations that support the educational mission of the District and/or promote the effective, efficient, or safe management and operation of the District. Fundraising programs, including enterprise activities, will be in the best interests of the District and will not interfere with the operation of the District's programs and functions. District fundraising programs will not conflict with any applicable law and/or state or federal constitutional provisions, including the separation of church and state.

This policy governs the establishment and administration of District fundraising for the general fund and for particular programs in the District. It does not address fundraising programs conducted by the Parent Teacher Student Association or other non-profit or citizens organizations. Fundraising by the Associated Study Body is addressed by RCW 28A.325.030 and Board Policy No. 3530

The Superintendent (or designee) will establish procedures for the administration of District fundraising programs to ensure compliance with all applicable laws.
