“Crowdfunding” are those online fundraisers that help teachers and schools solicit donations of money and supplies to enhance classrooms and enrich the education of their students. Crowdfunding sites are popular with teachers and other well-intentioned individuals seeking to raise funds for their schools. However, the practice can cause significant potential legal issues for schools and district employees.
