Gifts, Grants and Bequests

In accordance with applicable law and regulation, the School Board may accept any devise, bequest, grant, endowment or donation of any property, real or personal.

The School Board authorizes the Superintendent to specify the manner in which gifts are made, to define the type of gift or grant which is appropriate and to reject those deemed inappropriate or unsuitable.

Gifts, grants and bequests shall:

  1. Be administered in line with the intent of the donor;
  2. Be deemed fitting and appropriate;
  3. Be of value to the educational program;
  4. Include installation costs unless waived by the Superintendent; and
  5. Not require excessive maintenance or personnel training costs.

The principal or Superintendent, on behalf of the School Board, shall formally acknowledge receipt of gifts, grants and bequests made to a school or the School Division. Such donations become the property of the School Division.

Corporate or other private sponsorship of interscholastic activities is governed by School Board Policy 7-70 and School Board Regulation 7-70.1 and is not defined as a gift, grant, or bequest.
