Daily Compliance Item- 12/5/12- Fundraiser for Apparel Items

The Ocean State University Men’s Golf team is required to wear a coat and tie when traveling to away from home competitions.  Several of the student-athletes do not have jackets, so they decide to run a car wash to raise money for the jackets.  Is this permissible?

No.  NCAA Staff Interpretation- 11/4/87- Car wash used to earn money to purchase apparel items– states that it would not be permissible per Constitution 3-1-(g)-(5), for student-athletes to conduct a car wash to earn money to purchase apparel items (e.g., travel blazer, jacket) that are not directly related to athletic participation.
