810 – Gifts And Bequests


Gifts and bequests to the District shall be accepted or rejected by the Board of Directors. However, the administrative staff may accept building level or department level gifts with a value not exceeding $5,000.00 on behalf of the District. All gifts and bequests shall be administered in pursuance of the terms of the gift or bequest. Such gifts shall become the property of the District and shall be under the control of the Board of Directors. The District shall not accept gifts or bequests that improperly discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ethnic background, religion, creed, political belief, disability, physical attribute or socio-economic status.

Media Materials.

The District shall judge and accept or reject all media gift materials based on the same criteria applied to materials selected and purchased by the District. If the gift is of sufficient value to be considered a major gift, the principal shall be informed and the gift shall be subject to Board acceptance. The District, because of function and space of the media centers, cannot promise in all cases to maintain a collection or group of educational materials as a single entity segregated from the circulating and reference collections. The District reserves the right to make the decision as to the most appropriate use and housing of a gift collection. Educational materials may be identified by appropriate name plates indicating donor information.
