Edison PTA depends on your generous donations. Our PTA spends $450 per student on educational enrichment and community building at Edison, and we count on your donations, no matter how big or small, to make this happen.
During our Fall Membership Drive, as we ask you to join or renew your PTA membership, we also ask that each family donate what they can, with a recommended contribution of $300 or more per child, to fund PTA programs. Make your donation early in the school year to front load our PTA budget and make funds available when needed throughout the year.
We also rely on additional donations throughout the year, from families, friends, and community members. All donations are tax deductible.
The benefit of your Edison PTA donation can be significantly increased (at no cost to you) through Corporate Matching programs. Check with your Human Resource Department or search for your company’s name on the Charity Navigator to see if your employer will match your Edison PTA donation.
