Educational Foundation   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education recognizes that members of the community are often willing to make voluntary contributions that will provide needed additional funds to the school district. The board, therefore, approves and encourages the creation of independent educational foundation(s) to raise funds that will enhance educational opportunities for our students.

The board desires to work cooperatively with the private, nonprofit, foundation(s) in determining the purposes for which funds may be used to meet the changing needs of the district and its students. Articles of incorporation and bylaws of the foundation(s) should be drawn up by an attorney and ensure that the foundation(s) remains qualified as a charitable, tax-exempt organization.

(cf. 3290 - Gifts, Grants, and Bequests)

(cf. 9140 - Board Representatives)

The board supports foundation(s) allocations that service all district schools equitably.
