Will I receive a receipt?                    

ALL donations will get a donation confirmation by email that your donation has been received by the TTF.  Donations of $250 or more will receive a tax receipt. Be sure to include youre-mail address on your donation form!

When will I receive my tax receipt for my donation?

Can I split my donation between two forms of payment?

When will I get my car magnet?

If you bring your donation or pledge to Open House or Meet and Greet to the TTF table, you will receive your magnet immediately. Otherwise, if you send your donation or pledge in to the school, we will send the car magnet home to you in your child’s backpack as soon as possible.

Is the TTF different from the PTA?

The PTA and the TTF each have distinct and essential roles and operated under specific parameters to improve the quality of our children’s education. By working together, we are able to support teachers and administrators, provide up-to-date technology & supplies, provide enrichment programs, keep families connected to school events, capital improvements, and much, much more! By supporting these two wonderful organizations, you are truly investing in YOUR child’s education!
