Where Does the Money Go
Blue Heron PTA has a difficult task every year to raise several thousand dollars to enrich the educational experience for our children, but do you know what the money is spent on? As a non-profit organization, Blue Heron PTA has to spend the money earned. We aim to provide all of the items listed; however, our budget has to be adjusted if we do not meet our fundraising goals. If you want to have input on where the money is spent, please volunteer for a Board Position.
This includes all the wonderful events and activities sponsored by the PTA. We are always working hard to bring more programs and activities to Blue Heron if/when we have the funds!

One Time Expenses
Blue Heron PTA is requested to contribute approximately $30,000 annually to the school to cover the above mentioned programs and expenses. As you know, the money is collected one fundraiser at a time and is made possible by your generosity. Please consider supporting our school with your financial contributions and your time! Our children and their future depend on it.
