California School Board Association recently released a best practices article CSBA Fundraising Oversight Guidelines designed to provide direction to districts in understanding the requirements needed from district policy and the vendors they choose. “Despite the obvious benefits of online fundraising, districts need to be aware of all such campaigns conducted in the name of the district, a district school or a district employee. It’s important that the district set ground rules that ensure transparency, fiscal integrity and effective use of the funds,” CSBA Senior Policy Manual Consultant Diane Greene suggested.
