The following guidelines are intended to assist fundraising vendors interested in offering their program/services to a school or organization within the Davis School District. The guidelines are also intended to provide schools and their organizations with the expectations Davis School District has for all fundraising vendors.
The Davis School District requires all potential fundraising vendors to submit:
- Initial non-refundable fee of $50 at the time of application, payable to the Davis Education Foundation
- Davis School District Fundraiser Application accompanied by supporting documents and marketing materials that explain programs and services offered.
- Fundraising references
- Photocopy of registration form or letter from the Utah Division of Consumer Protection (Utah Code 13- 22-2.11)
Utah Code 13-22-2.11 requires that ‘professional fund-raisers’ register with the Utah Division of Consumer Protection within the Utah Department of Commerce. Organizations must have either a Professional Fundraiser Permit or a Commercial Co-venture letter. Contact the Utah Division of Consumer Protection (http://consumerprotection.utah.gov/registrations, 160 East 300 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 8411, Phone: 801-530-6601, Toll-Free: 1-800-721-SAFE, Fax: 801-530-6001) to determine whether or not you need to register as a professional fund-raiser. Applicants will need to provide a copy of the letter provided by Utah Department of Commerce indicating the status of represented company (either as a commercial co-venture or a professional fund-raiser) with the application form.
- Photocopy of a valid Business License
A review committee will assess the application. The applicant will be notified with a decision. If approved, the vendor will receive a letter and an Approved Vendor Pass. If denied, the vendor will receive a letter stating the reason for the denial.
An Approved Vendor Pass acknowledges a vendor may offer their program/service to organizations within the Davis School District. Vendors are required to set an appointment with the appropriate school personnel.
Receiving a pass does not obligate a school or organization to meet with the vendor nor does it endorse any product, service or material.
