Guidelines of the Fund
1. Every cent we raise will go to support teachers as well as certified and classified school district employees from counties/districts where all schools have been closed due to work stoppage. We will not keep any overhead. 2. Funds will be collected and distributed through Louisville DSA, with the process open to accountability between the leadership of Kentucky chapters of DSA.3. Any remaining funds will be donated to a charitable organization serving children's needs, to be determined.4. Applications will be reviewed based on the urgency of the need, how specific the request is, and how directly the request is connected to the strike. Priorities will include gas, meals for striking teachers and students out of school, water, sign making supplies. The suggested max request is $500.5. Teachers and other school personnel may apply for funds here, and should receive notification on funding decisions approximately 2 weeks after their application is submitted. 6. We will verify that only certified and classified school district employees receive funds, and that need is documented. 7. Donations are not tax-deductible.
