Each direct-support organization (DSO) wishing to operate under the auspices of South Florida State College (SFSC) must be annually certified by the SFSC District Board of Trustees (DBOT) as meeting the conditions set forth by the Board.  DSOs so certified by the DBOT may be permitted use of the college’s property, facilities, and personal services.

One or more members of the DBOT may be designated by the DBOT to serve as a voting member of the Board of all direct support organizations.

Each DSO authorized by the DBOT will adopt Articles of Incorporation and/or Bylaws.

The president of SFSC shall monitor, review, and approve the activities, publications, requests for use of college property, facilities, personal services, and procedures of the college’s DSOs (for example, South Florida State College Foundation, Inc.) to assure that these organizations continually meet the legal requirements necessary to enjoy the benefits of association with the college. The president shall serve as an ex-officio voting member of all DSOs.

The president of SFSC is authorized to implement procedures and guidelines appropriate to allow a DSO the use of college property, facilities, and personal services subject to the provisions of law.

All official fundraising activities of SFSC, excluding on-campus student solicitations, conducted subject to college policy and resource development activities shall be coordinated by or in cooperation with the South Florida State College Foundation, Inc.
