Support Our School

Every dollar raised by the PTO, whether through a direct donation, a PTO sponsored event, or a program like Box Tops or Amazon Smile, goes directly back to the school. 


Direct Donations

The best way to support PTO programming is through direct donations. Monetary donations from Richards families to the PTO make up more than 40% of the PTO’s annual budget. PTO funding creates an alternate source of financial support for our school. By contributing to the PTO, Richards families help to create a channel of private funding to meet our teacher’s and student’s needs. All the money the PTO raises goes directly back to Richards, and as part of the PTO, parents get to work with teachers and school administration to say where and how these funds are spent. Consider donating today! You can download a Direct Donation form here (return the form and your donation to school with your child), or donate online by clicking on the Donate Now! button below.

Richards School PTO is a registered 501c(3) non-profit organization: 39-20229622. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
