Bosco System Catholic Schools Policy on Fundraising
All fundraising activity for the Bosco Catholic School System will be coordinated by the office. This is to ensure that the message being presented by the system is consistent and that donors are not over solicited for funds on behalf of the school. All fundraising events must be approved through the following process.
1 – Submit the application for fundraising event form to the office at least 60 days prior to the fundraiser.
2 – In collaboration. the administrative staff and the foundation committee will analyze the fundraiser upon the three following criteria.
2a – The fundraiser must not detract from or conflict with the greater fundraising efforts of the school. (STO, SCRIP, Annual Fund, Capital Campaign)
2b – The fundraiser does not take too much student, parent, faculty, or administrative time.
2c – The fundraiser is for a purpose that is not covered through the annual operating budget of the school.
3 – An advisory committee made up of the foundation committee, 1-2 board members and administration will assist in considering requests. Approval must be granted before the event may proceed.
Events will be approved or denied based upon the criteria discussed above. The development office will be responsible for returning a written description of reasons for the approval or denial of an event within 30 days of application. Please understand that the purpose of this policy is not to take away from community involvement in the school but rather to encourage a common and consistent theme of stewardship. We must be careful to be good stewards of all this is given to us and to ask for support only in manners consistent with what has been communicated to the community. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy please contact the Casey Redmond at 319-296-1692 or firstname.lastname@example.org
