PTSA Fundraising at Ballard High School
Ballard High School PTSA stands out due to the level of support of our Mission Statement. The money we raise is targeted to general usage for things like fulfillment of teacher grant requests- see the list below; for ongoing programs, such as the Ballard High School Foundation Graduation Assistance Impacting the Needs of Students (GAINS) program and Scholarships; general assistance for students in need; and The PTSA also gladly supports other Ballard High School booster organizations by paying for emails and auction software, and other support tools. Information about other BHS fundraising can be found at this link.
We direct funds both in ways that have wide impact, such as designing our grant guidelines to put priority on those requests that impact the greatest number of students; as well as more targeted impact, where a percentage of money is devoted to where there is not as wide an impact, but instead focused on where they may be more need- good examples being Bucky’s Home For The Holidays and scholarships. We welcome your feedback, and your participation in the process. Let us know how you feel!
Over the 2015-2016 school year your PTSA raised about $140,000, mostly through these means:
