Acceptance of Gifts

For the benefit of the school, the Principal may accept gifts, bequests, or donations for any proper purpose up to $1,000 without prior School Board of Director approval. Gifts from or grants applied for by the PACT Panthers PTO or Panthers Booster Club may be accepted by the Superintendent of Schools regardless of the amount. The School Board of Directors shall have the sole authority to determine whether any gift, bequest, or donation for any proper purpose or any precondition, condition, or limitation on use included in a proposed gift furthers the interest of or benefits the school and whether it should be accepted or rejected as a donation on behalf of PACT Charter School.

Gifts of Real or Personal Property

The School Board of Directors may accept bequests, donations, gifts, grants, or devise of real or personal property only by adopting a resolution approved by a majority of members. The resolution must fully describe any conditions placed on the gift. The real or personal property so accepted may not be used exclusively for religious or sectarian purposes. The Principal may accept gifts with a fair market value of up to $1,000 without prior board approval. The Superintendent of Schools may accept gifts from the PACT Panthers PTO or Panthers Booster Club valued at any amount without prior board approval. 



If the school board agrees to accept a bequest, donation, gift, grant, or device that contains preconditions, conditions, or limitations on use, the School Board of Directors shall administer it in accordance with those terms. Once accepted, a gift shall be the property of the school unless otherwise provided in the agreed-upon terms.
