Answer: Many school district McKinney-Vento programs create an independent non-profit organization or foundation (that is either affiliated with the school district by an MOU or is totally separate) to receive donations and grants. By going this route, the McKinney-Vento programs are not subject to any of the school district’s restrictions, and donors can receive appropriate tax benefits.
Do you have any suggestions for how school district McKinney-Vento programs can receive donations for McKinney-Vento students? It’s a problem for our school district to receive cash donations or grants.
