Fundraising Resources

Fundraising Guidelines:

      • The primary source of funds should be membership dues.
      • One or two well-planned, annual fund-raising projects will usually raise whatever funds are necessary to finance the year’s activities.
      • If the fund-raising event is to reflect the high principles of the association, it will have educational, social or recreational value.
      • Fundraising should be secondary; funds are raised to support goals. PTAs should not be raising a bunch of money and then decide what to do with it.
      • Children should never be exploited or used as fund-raisers and should not be expected to go door-to-door.
      • Be aware of Smart Snacks Fundraising and Guidelines
      • Get your principal's input and approval
      • Thank your membership for their support
