One of our primary sources of funding comes from our Annual Fund. Based on feedback from families, the PTO eliminated the typical school fundraisers like selling candles, candy, and wrapping paper. Families told us they would like to “opt-out” of these types of fundraisers where only a portion of the proceeds actually goes to the PTO, and instead make one direct tax-deductible contribution to the PTO Annual Fund. A direct donation ensures that 100% of your intended support goes to the PTO and all of the resources and services we provide to Stratton. Thanks to the support of generous families like yours, the PTO is able to entirely fund or subsidize engaging field trips, in-school enrichment, and in-classroom curriculum and technology support.Did you know that you may be able to double your donation without any additional cost to you? The Stratton PTO is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization! Many companies will match tax-deductible contributions made by their employees and some will provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! Check with your employer to see if you have a matching gift program.
