Fundraising from the public is an essential and valuable source of revenue for many schools. It is critical that schools carry out all fundraising from the public in an open, transparent, honest, respectful and accountable manner.

The board of management must develop and agree a fundraising from the public policy. The policy must be reviewed annually and updated where necessary. The board of management must approve the fundraising activities of the school for the coming year.
