Fundraising FAQ

How much should I give?

Each year, the PTA spends over $1,000 per child. Please consider a donation in this amount, but every donation is appreciated. Whether you give

$20 or $2,000, every dollar counts! Our goal is 100% family participation.


Why is the annual pledge drive important?

While in past years our annual auction has raised over $200,000 to support our programming, we will not be able to rely on the auction this year and must rely more on our pledge drive to support our fundraising goals.


What does your contribution fund?

Enrichment programs, school supplies, field trips, community events.


How can I double my gift?

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Find out if your company has a matching gift policy.


Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes! 100% of your donation to the annual pledge drive is tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. PS199 PTA is a 501(c)(3) organization.
