Understanding PAC Finances
Fundraising is an important part of the activities put on or supported by the PAC throughout the year. Funds raised by the PAC are used to support parents, students and the teachers in a number of ways. The teachers are able to enrich the classroom experience and environment through some of the funds raised. Field trips may be supported, computers and other technology purchased, books purchased for the library, educational seminars offered to parents, gardens planted, etc. Any money that the PAC spends through fundraising must be approved by the PAC.
There are primarily two sources of funds available to PAC’s - 1) fundraising, and 2) community gaming grant.
Community Gaming Grant is available each year with eligible PACs receiving grant funds equivalent to $20.00 multiplied by the number of students enrolled in the previous school year. Gaming grants are very helpful to community schools but do come with a number of restrictions, making the need for general fundraising very important to fulfilling the mission of the PAC
