It’s Why Wednesday! Q: Why is there so much paperwork in PTA?
A: We have been working to streamline some of the paperwork to try to make your life easier. This includes creating fillable versions of some of the most commonly used forms, which are available online in our Online Toolkit at toolkit.capta.org.
Every 501(c)3 non-profit is a business and is required to keep track of and report to government agencies about their activities, especially financial activities. California State PTA has created forms, policies, and procedures that help our unit officers and volunteers meet all legal requirements to operate a public charity in California. Paper trails are also necessary to make sure that every PTA and its officers and members are covered by insurance and to prevent fraud and misuse of PTA resources.
Every Wednesday on the blog and on social media, we will be answering the most commonly asked questions about PTA. Do you have any questions we can answer for Why Wednesday? There are four ways to send us your questions:
