Why does Phantom Lake PTA do so many fundraisers?
Fundraising is a necessary part of any PTA in order to accomplish our mission and goals. Phantom Lake PTA is a nonprofit, membership association working to enchance educational opportunities for every child while strengthening home and community. To make this, we have to raise money to bridge the gap between public funding and actual program expenses.
Fundraising can also be a great opportunity to have fun, community events! Our annual Dinner Theater and Walkathon events have been great family fun nights along with helping to achieve our fundraising goals!
Where Does the Money Go?
Money raised by the PTA supports the students, parents, staff and community of Phantom Lake Elementary. PTA funds are used to supplement supplies, provide school and library support, staff grants and professional development, playground equipment, education experiences and assemblies, free family activities throughout the year such as the Harvest Dance, holiday craft night, ice cream social, and so much more!
Are My Donations Tax Deductible?
