THE CRAGMONT FUND
Cragmont PTA directly funds many programs at our school that enrich the Cragmont experience for our students, such as our art class, dance instruction, field trips, gardening supplies, math interventions, school supplies, teacher appreciation lunches, and much more.
This is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year! We need your help to raise funds to keep the wonderful programming we have for next year. The Cragmont PTA is a IRC 501(3)(c) non-profit organization (FEIN: 23-7015673)
The Cragmont PTA raises money each year to pay for art and dance instruction, school supplies, field trips, and much more. Most of these funds come directly from you — the Cragmont community.
Each year, we raise funds for the next school year, so our current fundraising will support programming in 2024-25.
