PTO Fundraising Ideas

The difference between a PTO and PTA is that one is independent and one is part of a national association. But the need for PTO fundraisers is just as great. In this section we explore different PTO fundraising ideas. Since most parent groups are limited in the number of fundraisers they can hold you should review the list carefully. All of these have been tried and are proven money raisers.
