What does the Bond mean for fundraising?

As most of you probably know by now, the $350 million Bond on the ballot this past November (www.adams12.org/bond) was approved!  PTO provides important funding for the school that cannot be paid for with the bond money. (Please see the above items.)  Bond money is for infrastructure only.

 

Where is all that Marijuana tax money?

Sales tax on retail marijuana doesn’t significantly boost overall per-pupil funding for Colorado schools statewide. Most funds are funneled through grant programs that districts have to apply for in hopes of extra funding for specific projects and programs. Marijuana revenue represents about 1 percent of the state’s total education budget, according to Colorado Department of Education.

The (not-so) Fine Print

The PTO is a Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and gifts may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.

Thank you for your Support!

Please contact Heather Carpenter, our fundraising chair with all questions. Please do not call the school.
