Fundraising

In an effort to maintain appropriateness, Canyons School District requires all vendors to show written authorization before contacting any school or organization. The Canyons Education Foundation is responsible for reviewing and approving fundraising entities used for school fundraising. School personnel/PTA may only use Foundation approved entities and may recommend potential commercial entities for review and approval by the Foundation.   

An approval letter may be granted after receipt and review of appropriate documents. Any violation of these expectations may result in a vendor losing the privilege of conducting business within Canyons School District. 

The following guidelines are intended to assist fundraising vendors interested in offering their program/services to a school or organization within the Canyons School District.  The guidelines are also intended to provide schools and organizations with the expectations Canyons School District has for all fundraising vendors. For information about the district fundraising policy please visit Canyons School District’s Fundraising Policy.

Guidelines

Canyons School District requires all vendors to show written authorization before contacting any school or organization.  An approval letter may be granted after review of the following documents:
  • A copy of the organization’s current Business License
  • Application Fee of $50.00 (payable to the Canyons Education Foundation)
  • pdfFundraising application 
  • Product and program marketing literature
  • Organization’s current Professional Fundraising Permit with the Utah State Department of Consumer Protections. Utah Code 13-22-2.11

A committee will assess the submitted documents. Once reviewed, the applicant will be notified of the committee’s decision to either grant an Approval Letter, or notification of denial from the Foundation Office. 

Vendors are required to set an appointment with the appropriate school personnel as a way to introduce themselves and their program/service.  Vendor representatives should be professional in their demeanor and respectful of their potential client’s time.

Receiving an Approval Letter does not guarantee any vendor that a school or organization must meet with them, nor is it an endorsement of any product, service, or material.  It is expected that all vendors will respect school administration and personnel and support an organization’s decision when it comes to choosing a Fundraising program.  Any violation of these expectations may result in a vendor losing the privilege of conducting business within Canyons School District.
