Fundraising activities should have educational, cultural or community value.
Principals must be able to produce records of such activities, including a financial accounting, and to demonstrate the need for the funds so raised.

School-initiated fund-raising activities for charitable causes are permitted at the discretion of the principal, who shall obtain the support of the Parents’ Committee.
