Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Fundraising
What is money raised through fundraising events used for?
Money raised through fundraisers goes into the Student Activity Fund (SAF). This is a different account than the operating budget provided by FCPS. Student Activity Funds have two basic purposes, to promote the general welfare, education, and morale of all students and to finance the recognized extracurricular activities of the student body. This can include things like books, materials for projects, offsetting costs of field trips, playground safety, playground materials, site licenses for electronic resources, technological resources for children, some Montessori materials, in house assemblies, snacks for MSA's. It cannot be spent on teachers' stipends, community events, infrastructure or repair, some kinds of materials of instruction, or anything that does not directly benefit welfare, education, or morale.

Who decides how fundraising money is spent?
The principal, in collaboration with the Governing Council and teachers, determines how the SAF money is to be spent. These determinations will always be made with the guiding principles of serving the students' welfare, education, and morale.
