Fundraising drives provide valuable resources to support school activities that may augment, but not replace the activities financed by Westminster Public Schools (WPS). Funds derived from the student body as a whole shall be so expended as to benefit the student body as a whole. Funds derived from authorized clubs and organizations shall be expended to benefit the specific club or organization and to benefit those students currently in school who have contributed to the accumulation of these funds.
