WHERE DOES YOUR $10 GO?
Cromwell Valley PTA remains in good standing with the National, State and County PTA. We contribute to their efforts to advocate for our children by sharing more than a third of member dues ($3.72 of $10) as dues to the County, State and National PTA. They support healthy lunches, physical education, adequate budgets and buildings as well as providing valuable information and assistance on issues beyond CVE.
WHAT STAYS AT CVE?
We strive to use our money for the purpose intended: teaching and enrichment of our children. After the PTA dues are paid, over eighty five percent of spending goes to teachers for use in the classroom and to programs like the 5th grade camp, school assemblies, chess club, back to school picnic, Multicultural Fair and Reflections as well as programs for parents (advocacy).
WHAT ADMINISTRATIVE COST?
Almost 90 percent of these costs are for providing information and support for our members–the Gigabyte Gazette (newsletter), School Directory, child care at meetings as well as event information and other member support. The necessary insurance and bank charges are kept to about ten percent of administrative costs (less than 1.5% of total spending).
FUNDRAISING IS ESSENTIAL.
We greatly appreciate and value the dues our members provide. But more than half our income is from fundraisers and donations. Member dues account for just fewer than 20 percent of income and $3.72 of our $10 dues goes to national, state and county PTA dues. Additionally, Family Fun events provide more than half as much as member dues.
