1004.70 Online Fundraising Campaigns – Crowdfunding

The district shall not approve crowdfunding campaigns initiated by district employees and/or volunteers on behalf of the building or district. Therefore, employees and/or volunteers are prohibited from establishing online fundraising campaigns to raise funds for district benefit.

This policy shall not be construed to prohibit online payments for district fundraisers that have been approved pursuant to district fundraising policies and that have been approved by the superintendent/designee.

In determining whether to approve an online payment option for an approved fundraiser, the district shall ensure that: (1) the fundraising company or entity will assume responsibility for providing the security of credit card information, bank routing information, email addresses, phone numbers, and any other personal information exchanged in the transaction; (2) fundraising campaign materials provide the online payment security information to those participating in the fundraiser; and (3) money earned through an online payment option is remitted to building and/or district accounts using the established business office protocols.
