Solicitation Disclosure Policy
All gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that the Goddard Education Foundation has complete control over the use of all donated funds. The GEF policy is that all gifts designated for a specific project be applied to that project, with up to 10 percent used for administrative and fundraising expenses. Occasionally we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar need. It is our policy to support the needs of Goddard Public Schools.
