COMMUNITY RELATIONS

SOLICITATION OF FUNDS FROM AND BY STUDENTS

Solicitations on Behalf of Charitable Organizations
The Governing Board recognizes that participation in fund-raising for nonprofit, nonpartisan charitable organizations can help students develop a sense of social responsibility.

When approved in advance by the Board, funds may be solicited or materials distributed for those nonprofit, nonpartisan organizations that are properly chartered or licensed by state or federal law. (Education Code 51520)

Solicitations on Behalf of the School
With the approval of the Superintendent or designee, official school-related organizations may organize fund-raising events involving students.

All Solicitations
Whether solicitations are made on behalf of the school or on behalf of another charitable organization, the Board particularly desires that no students shall be made to feel uncomfortable or pressured to provide funds. Staff is expected to emphasize the fact that donations are always voluntary. No students shall be barred from an activity because they did not participate in fund-raising.
