702.7 Gifts, Grants, and Bequests

Code No. 702.7



Gifts, grants, and bequests to the District shall be either accepted or rejected by the Board of Directors.  All gifts, grants, and bequests shall be deposited into a trust fund, agency fund or permanent fund, shall be used or administered in accordance with the terms of the gift or bequest, and shall become the property of the District under the control of the Board of Directors.  The District shall not accept gifts, grants, or bequests that improperly discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ethnic background, religion, creed, political belief, physical attribute, generic information, socio-economic status or any other protected class under state or federal law.

The District shall judge and accept or reject all media gift materials based on the same criteria applied to materials selected and purchased by the District.  The District, because of function and space of the media centers, cannot promise in all cases to maintain a collection or group of educational materials as a single entity segregated from the circulating and reference collections.  The District reserves the right to make the decision as to the most appropriate use and housing of a gift collection.  Educational materials may be identified by appropriate name plates indicating donor information.
