Make a donation
The PTA is has a running direct donation campaign to raise $25,000 in operating funds for the 2018-19 school year. We have raised money this way for the past few years, and thanks to you and our amazing community of supporters, the PTA has had great success making sure our students and community are thriving.
We hope to have another successful campaign this year, and to accomplish this $25,000 goal, we are asking you to please give what you can!

As the BMES PTA is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, donations are tax-deductible and 100% of your donations go to help our children and our school. Receipts can be provided upon request, and all contribution information will be kept confidential.
Did you know that you might be able to double your donation… at no cost to you? Ask your (or your spouse’s) Human Resources department whether they offer a corporate match program for charitable giving. Every dollar counts! Why not make yours count twice?
Contact a board member with any questions.

Advertise in our School Directory
In the fall, the PTA publishes its annual directory of students and distributes it to PTA members. The directory is a vital resource used throughout the school year. Therefore, ads placed in the directory are viewed year-round! In addition, an ad in the directory shows our community that your business supports our school! AtoZ Directories will be helping us this year with ad sales and directory printing. If you or a business you know is interested in advertising in our print or mobile directory during the 2017-18 school year, please email AtoZ Directories at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your support!
Purchase goods and services from vendors who support the PTA
Numerous businesses provide financial support to the PTA when you patronize their establishments. When you patronize a business that advertises in the Bells Mill Calendar or the Student Directory, remember to mention that you saw their ad.
