What is the purpose of the Fundraising Society?
Fundraising Associations (FRAs) are separate, legal entities with distinct rules to follow, responsibilities to comply with and liabilities to consider. They can choose how to raise and spend funds, but cannot compel the principal or school community to participate/accept funds. It is essential for Fundraising Associations to clarify who has authority and for what. Positive, collaborative, mutually respectful relationships with the principal and school council are integral to the success of each and in the best interests of students.
