What can the funds be used for?It is the intent of the PTO to support student organizations in fulfilling their missions. You are welcome to make any request approved by the officers of your club and by your club advisor. The PTO is more inclined to fund requests of a capital/more lasting nature; typically, the PTO tends NOT to fund requests for parties, food, t-shirts, travel and meals to competitions, or other items not specifically related to the mission of the club. Feel free to contact the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the nature of your request.
How much can a club request?Fund requests are limited to $500 per club, per year.
How does a club make a request?Complete the STUDENT CLUBS - FUNDS REQUEST FORM - either using the electronic form below or email a scanned copy to email@example.com. Please note the following:*At least one student from the organization must attend a PTO meeting to present the fund request and to answer questions from PTO members. Please prepare a 2-3 minute presentation. Enter the date of the PTO meeting at which you want to present on the request form. Dates can be found on the PTO website (http://www.paradisevalleypto.org/calendar.html). Requests must be submitted at least 10 days prior to meeting presentation date.*Be as specific as possible when outlining the explanation of amount requested, including an explanation of cost items and how they were calculated.*Upon award, the funds will be deposited in the student club account in the Bookstore by the PTO Treasurer. This procedure will be used even if the student club has an affiliated booster group; no awards under this program can be deposited in booster accounts.
What is the Final Report?Upon grant of funds request and completion of project, the student organization will need to submit a written final report. A final report detailing how the funds were used, including receipts must be submitted no later than May 1 of the current school year (unless an exception has been granted by the PTO due to the timing of the funded request). The final report form can be found on the PTO website. Please complete the form online. If preferred, the final report can be made in the form of a presentation at a PTO meeting. Contact the PTO President at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to give a presentation.
