Beyond the Bake Sale: Storing Boosters Money in the School Safe

Q. Can we temporarily store money that belongs to the Boosters in the school safe?

A. You cannot store any money in the school safe that is not public money. The Boosters' money is private. This would be considered using a public resource for the advantage of a private business. I have heard stories of auditors finding money in the school safe labeled “Boosters” or “PTO/PTA” and require that the money be placed into ASB.
