School and PTSA Donation Information

Harvest Park Families:

We need your help! 

Our Parent-Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is dedicated to empowering parents to make a difference in the education, health, and safety of students at Harvest Park. Please help make our school the best it can be by joining PTSA today. 

We would also like to encourage families to make a annual donation of $125 per student.  But any amount is very much appreciated and will be put to good use. When you contribute to Harvest Park PTSA, 100% of your donation will support our students here at Harvest Park.

Benefit of Tax-Deductibility

Harvest Park PTSA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID: 94-3399025). Contributions to Harvest Park PTSA are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by the IRS. Please check with your accountant at tax time.

When considering how much to donate, please consider the following:
  • Most taxpayers quality for a 30–50% tax deduction on donations to nonprofits like the Harvest Park PTSA.
  • If you give $100, you may receive at least 30% back in taxes on that donation, resulting in an actual out-of-pocket donation of $50–$70. 
  • But Harvest Park PTSA will still receive $100!



Employer Matching Funds

Many employers match their employees' contributions to nonprofit organizations. Please check with your employers to see if they will match your donation! 

We are grateful for all the help and money that Harvest Park parents give to better our children's education. We have partnered with our teachers and staff to make Harvest Park one of the top public schools in the state. Education funding from the state continues to be low, so our school depends on community support to ensure that our students continue to thrive in a wonderful learning atmosphere.
