Through fundraising, the Roosevelt PTA is able to pay the salary of our art teacher who is in the classrooms bi-weekly. The PTA also helps our teachers with trainings and helps the school purchase technology, software programs, and materials that are not funded through their budget.

 

We want to help you find the best way, or ways, to make your personal contribution to the Roosevelt Community. It is possible for everyone to help support the PTA in its mission through contributions large or small, monetary or not. Together we can make a difference!

 

*A note about financial contributions: 

  • The Roosevelt PTA and Boise Public Schools Education Foundation (BPSEF) are 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. Contributions may be tax deductible and/or qualify for the Idaho Educational Tax Credit. Please contact a tax professional regarding your specific tax situation.
  • All monetary contributions to PTA fundraising events go directly into the PTA General Fund and are distributed throughout the budget categories to be used the following year. This ensures the allocation of funds is handled through a transparent democratic business process. At the end of each school year, the budget categories are reviewed and any proposed changes must be approved through a vote.
  • There may be other fundraisers independent of the PTA throughout the year working towards a specific cause. Examples of these may be, a 3rd-grade class holding a bake sale to raise money to buy two additional ipads for their classroom or the 6th-grade classes selling pizzas to earn money for MOSS (McCall Outdoor Science School).
  • If you want to make a contribution and have it go to a specific classroom, teacher, or purpose during the current school year it is suggested you make your contribution through The Boise Education Foundation.

Box Top

Box Tops (like everything) is going paperless! While they still accept traditional Box Tops from General Mills products, the new and improved Box Tops mobile app uses state-of-the-art technology to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to your school's earnings online. Eventually, Box Tops will become digital-only. Download the app and scan your receipt within 14 days of purchase. In the app, click on the star to credit Box Tops to a specific classroom.

 

When you collect Box Tops (year round!) you help fund Roosevelt's art program, teacher training, technology, etc. Thank you!
