How We PTA

In This Section

PTA is no longer a noun.

It’s a verb—an action plan working to support your child’s success.

There’s no wrong way to PTA. However you do it, it’s all an investment in your child. PTA to support your child’s teachers and curriculum. PTA to advocate on the issues impacting your child and affect change at the local, state and national levels. PTA to build a stronger, more diverse and inclusive school community.

We invite every family to PTA, because we can do more together than apart.

National PTA COVID-19 Relief Case Studies

Throughout the darkest moments of the pandemic, PTA was there—working for our nation’s students, families, teachers, administrators and business and community leaders. Thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners, National PTA distributed over $1.38 million dollars to PTA communities nationwide, providing over 538,000 families with desperately needed support in our COVID Relief Project (2020-2021). Then, as a funded partner of the We Can Do This Campaign, National PTA distributed another $560,000 dollars to local PTAs, facilitating more than 444 community health events and 12,757+ vaccinations (2022-2023).
