Who We Are > Budget / Finances / Grants
Budget & Finances Overview
The Tuckahoe PTA raises funds through a variety of events and programs including the gift wrap sale, the book fair, school pictures, Harvest Fest, Home and Garden Tour and the PTA Auction. These funds are spent to enrich the school programs and facilities. Our two largest expenditures are for the funding of the Discovery Schoolyard
and our Teacher Grant Program
. Other funding goes to teacher training and activities, DessArt night, Odyssey of the Mind, visiting authors, technology and book fund, and student activities by grade level.
Our annual budget is put together by committee in the Spring for the following year. The chairs of the various committees are asked to estimate their budgetary needs for the next fiscal year. We also ask the fundraising chairs to estimate their income for the following year. Based on those projections, we formulate a budget that is voted on by the PTA board for preliminary approval, and then the budget is voted on by the general membership of the PTA at the beginning of the school year. The budget may be amended during the year by vote at the PTA board meetings.
