Why we fundraise

The Bloomingdale PTA, like all other 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, has operating expenses and expenses allocated to the programs that we provide for the students and teachers within the Bloomingdale School District. Our only source of funding these expenses are through monies raised from our fundraisers.  These funds are vital to the continued success of our organization and the programs we support.
