FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT POLICY

Mandatory Fundraising
The Marcus Garvey School greatly appreciates the fundraising efforts that have been made by a portion of our parents in the past. Marcus Garvey Parents are mandated to sign up for intermediate fundraisers or four major fundraisers each year. The total amount of fundraising per semester is $350.00. The total amount of fundraising per school year is $700.00. Parents choosing not to participate in mandatory fundraising events shall pay the mandated $350.00 per semester. This payment is in addition to the tuition and will be added to your Smart Tuition account. The payment will be due to the school no later than the end of the five (5) month fundraising period. Refusal to pay within a timely manner will result in separation from the school. “

PARENT VOLUNTEER NON-COMMITTAL POLICY

Optional Volunteer Hours:
Due to the busy work schedules of most of our parents, we have phased out the mandatory portion of our volunteer program and have made volunteer hours optional. A financial commitment is not attached to volunteerism and the number of hours dedicated to volunteering shall be determined by parents. We ask that you check in with your child’s teacher and administration a day prior to volunteering. Volunteer hours will not reduce mandatory fundraising obligations.

DONATIONS

Marcus Garvey School is open to receiving donations such as children’s books, copy paper, ink, pencils, crayons, staplers, staples, electric pencil sharpeners, art supplies, and any other supplies which serve as an addition daily usage of supplies. Donations will not reduce fundraising obligations.

Fundraising Commitment

The Marcus Garvey School greatly appreciates the fundraising efforts that have been made by our parents. Fundraising helps Marcus Garvey keep the cost of tuition down for our families. At the time of registration, each family signs a written agreement to participate the school’s fall and spring mandatory fundraisers. If a family achieves their sales quota for each fundraiser, no additional fees are charged. If a family does not reach their quota, they will be invoiced for the amount of the shortfall. Families who do not wish to participate in the school fundraisers may send in a fundraising buyout of $400 ($200 per semester) with a written request to be exempt from their quotas. All fundraiser payments (partial or full) will be due to the school no later than the end of the five (5) month fundraising period. Refusal to pay within a timely manner will result in separation from the school.
