CLOVIS SCHOOLS WARN AGAINST SOLICITORS TARGETING LOCAL BUSINESSES
CLOVIS (KSMX)- Local businesses are usually the first to be targeted for solicitation from third-party agencies or organizations stating they are raising funds on behalf of the students and/or staff of Clovis Municipal Schools.
If you are a business owner and encounter solicitations of this type, the agency or organization is not raising funds on the schools behalf. Clovis Municipal Schools does not endorse or support solicitations by non-school third parties. Additionally, Clovis Municipal Schools does not allow or endorse the use of online crowdfunding platforms.
Crowdfunding platforms such as donorschoose.org, gofundme.com, kickstarter.com and others designed to raise money through online donations from the public are not authorized or endorsed by the district for fundraising purposes.
When funding solicitation is necessary for district clubs, organizations, athletic programs, advertising events, or individual schools, the requests will come directly from an employee or student of the district.
Do not give money to anyone for school use unless you are confident that (s)he is either an employee or student of the District and is authorized to solicit funds.
If you believe someone is inappropriately soliciting money on behalf of Clovis Municipal Schools, please contact the Superintendent’s Office at 575-769-4320.
