Drives and Fundraising Projects
The Kinkaid School encourages and supports philanthropy through a wide variety of charitable efforts. We believe that students gain valuable leadership experience and skills by initiating and performing service projects that involve fundraising or the collection of goods.
To ensure that these projects are executed in a manner consistent with Kinkaid's fundraising policies, any project that includes asking Kinkaid students, parents, alumni or faculty and staff for contributions must be approved by the Donations Committee. The Committee works to prevent undue solicitation of our students, alumni, families and employees and also to ensure that fundraising projects are scheduled equitably throughout the school.
The Committee will receive applications for projects that include fundraising or collections of goods, such as drives for clothing, books or food, as follows:
- The project or event must be the effort of a group of Kinkaid students who are doing the project as part of a Kinkaid organization. Eligible organizations that may propose fundraising/collection projects include clubs, advisories, grade levels, academic classes, student government, sports teams, arts groups and scouting troops that are Kinkaid-based.
- The committee will not accept applications for projects done by individual students.
- Projects may be proposed only by students, who must complete the application form themselves.
- Each project must have a faculty sponsor who agrees to fulfill all the responsibilities required of the sponsor, as listed on the application.
Students wishing to hold a fundraising project or drive for the collection of goods should submit an approval form. Because the committee meets only twice a month, approval forms must be submitted at least 3 weeks before the start date of the proposed project.
