FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Where does the money I donate go?
The money donated to Pomeroy PTA funds the parent association budget. All monies collected directly benefit the students and staff of Pomeroy Elementary. Each year we have an annual budget ranging from XXX to fund the many programs and support staff positions currently on campus. For detailed information on the PTA budget, we welcome parents to attend one of our monthly meetings.
Public school is supposed to be free. Why am I being asked to donate?
State funding barely covers rising expenses and mandated programs. Without PTA funding, many of the programs that enrich our children’s curriculum would not be possible. The programs funded by parent contributions are what will bridge the gap and keep our school performing at a level we are proud of and have come to expect.
How do I get involved with the PTA?
The PTA is a parent run organization that relies on volunteers to function. We are always looking for additional assistance. If you are interested in getting involved, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Is my PTA membership donation tax deductible?
The cost of joining the PTA is not tax deductible. However, any donation that is made directly to the PTA is tax deductible. Here is Pomeroy's PTA TAX ID # 94-2668877 to use for any donations made to our organization.
