§235. Private funds and contributions

A. Every agency having private funds or contributions that have been made available for its support or for the purpose of defraying expenses of any work done under its direction, under such terms that they do not become the property of the state, shall deposit the funds or contributions with the treasurer in the manner prescribed by this Chapter for the deposit of public moneys, and shall certify to the treasurer: (1) the source from which such funds or contributions were received; (2) the terms and conditions under which, and the purpose for which they were received; (3) the names of the trustees or administrators of the funds or contributions; and (4) the name of the person authorized to approve expenditures from each fund or contribution.

B. The treasurer shall keep each fund or contribution in a special deposit entirely separate and distinct from those of any other funds. Withdrawals from the funds and contributions shall be made from the treasurer only on warrants drawn in accordance with the provisions of this Chapter. Statements of indebtedness by the person authorized to approve the expenditures will be filed in the budget unit prior to payment of expenditures.

C. In presenting its biennial budget estimates, each budget unit shall include full estimates of all cash available or to become available from the private funds and contributions for each fiscal year, as offsets against its full estimates of its expenditure requirements for each fiscal year, and in the executive budget the estimates shall be included in the estimates of resources available for financing the expenditure requirements for which appropriations are recommended. The provisions of this Chapter shall not apply to private funds of students in a state educational institution, nor to the private funds of inmates of a state institution, when the funds are deposited with an officer of such institution merely for safekeeping. In addition, the provisions of this Chapter shall not apply to private funds which have been donated to hospital chaplains for use in religious programs in state hospitals.
