Why Does The PTA Conduct Fundraising Activities?

 Our PTA is an independent non-profit organization with a mission to enhance and support the educational programs and environment at Wellington Elementary. Only a small portion of the PTA's income comes from PTA membership dues paid each year.  In order to provide valuable programs and services for all 450+ Wellington students, your Wellington Elementary PTA relies on the generous financial support of this community. In order to raise funds, the PTA conducts a variety of fundraisers to fit everyone's preferences. Here are some of the programs and services we provide:



Where Does My Donation Go?

Wellington PTA funds over $30,000 in programs, equipment, classroom support, and services each year that benefit our students. Programs like the Science Fair, professional STEM workshops, art docents, literacy support, and a drama performance would not exist without PTA fundraising.   


How Do I Make a Donation?

Making a donation is easier than ever!   

Work for an employer who provides matching charitable donations?  Please let our treasurer (treasurer@wellingtonpta.org) know to ensure that Wellington PTA benefits from your corporate matching program.  Wellington PTA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
