Community Justice FUND
TC PTA pays $11.50 in Regional, State and National PTA fees for each membership. Any excess funds we collect via memberships or donations are used to:
Supplement our community pantry
Redistribute to indigenous and youth-led BIPOC organizations
Assist local PTAs with immediate community needs
Contribute towards professional development opportunities around race and equity
Support our annual operating expenses
Each year, our annual membership actively participates in identifying where our additional funds are redistributed within our Community Justice Fund. In the fall of 2020 we made our first payment to the Real Rent campaign in support of the Duwamish Tribe, and contributed to the local chapter of the NAACP Youth Council. If you would like to further the financial reach of our Community Justice Fund, please use the link below to support our work through a direct donation. Questions?
