Fundraising

What are the PTA Fundraising Plans for 2015/2016?

The Ben Rush PTA operating budget for 2015-2016 is $112,000. Some of our programs are break-even (revenue received equal expenses spent), while other programs are supported by the generous donations of our Rush families. This school year, we anticipate that we will need to raise nearly $40,000 from Rush families.

How can I help?

Please participate in one of these easy fundraising programs. All net proceeds go back to the Ben Rush PTA.
