A review of related literature was conducted to ascertain research and findings in the area.A questionnaire was developed and field tested through a pilot study sample. The study population consisted of 355 Indiana public high school principals.Principals returned 316 of 355 survey questionnaires. Data obtained from questionnaires were analyzed, summarized, and presented, in narrative form. Tables were developed to report the raw data.Major findings were1. Indiana Law prescribes the financial procedures to be followed in accounting for student activity funds through the utilization of the "Extra Curricular Account."2. Principals are responsible for establishing policy and procedures for fund raising-activities in seventy-four percent of responding schools.3. Fifty-four percent of participating Indiana public high schools do not have an official school board policy governing fund raising activities throughout the school corporation.4. Ninety-nine percent of responding Indiana public high school-student bodies conduct fund raising activities within the school community.5. Principals reported approximately $6,386,494 dollars raised through fund raising activities conducted in participating Indiana public high schools during school year 1980-81.6. Candy sales are the most common fund raising activities utilized by students to raise funds. Major conclusions based upon the findings of the study were:1.
