How our PTA raises money:

Liberty Elementary PTA is an independent 501 (3) (c) non-profit organization with a mission to enhance and support the educational programs and environment at Liberty Elementary School. To provide this support to our schools and children, we need to raise money by conducting a variety of fundraisers. One of our goals is to minimize our need for fundraising activities while maximizing the benefits our students receive from our efforts.
