Fundraising

In the age of shrinking state and district budgets, Creston PTA has to fundraise to help fill financial gaps.  While fundraising is crucial to upholding the benefits PTA that offers such as learning enhancements, classroom supplies, educational programming, community-building events, and other areas affecting all children at the school, we want to be sure we are clear in our communication with you about how money is being raised and spent. 

Currently, Creston PTA needs to raise at least $16,000 annually to maintain its operating budget. If additional areas of funding are identified by the community as a need, further funds above and beyond the operating budget can be raised and earmarked for that specific cause. Area specific fundraising will always be identified as such as needs arise.
