Decatur County Community Schools
Administrative Guidelines


Charitable organizations are defined as any benevolent, philanthropic, patriotic, not-for-profit or charitable group, association, corporation, or organization proposed to be such, which solicits and collects funds for charitable purposes.

The following criteria will be used in order to ensure equitable consideration of all requests by charitable organizations or groups to solicit funds on School Corporation premises. In this context, fundraising shall also include solicitation of clothing, foodstuffs, or other products.

The purpose of the fundraising is to help alleviate an economic, health, cultural, educational, or social need in the school community area.

The Building Principal shall develop a procedure which each approved organization is to follow to solicit and collect funds within the building or on the premises. The procedure is to ensure that:



there is no disruption of the school program;



no funds are left in the building overnight.

These guidelines shall apply to all fundraising activities other than approved student fundraising activities and those approved for Corporation-related organizations.

All crowdfunding activities are subject to Policy 6605 and any administrative guidelines adopted by the Superintendent to implement Policy 6605.
