How does your PTO raise money?
We directly ask. Our impactful and effective Annual Fund is our largest source of income by a landslide. Your generosity on this front is the primary engine that drives your PTO. Thank you!
Our next largest income source is the Burns Park Run - a legendary community event - which we hope all of you will attend and support by inviting friends and guests.
We also earn income through tickets sales at our beloved Burns Park Elementary Ice Cream Social.
