Content Summary

Charter schools usually receive funding from a combination of public funds and private grants and donations. Since charter schools receive public funds, they may be subject to California laws prohibiting the use of public funds for certain legislative lobbying and candidate-related purposes. Additionally, charter schools are often, but not always, operated as or by tax-exempt nonprofit corporations.
