Letter from Our Co-Chairs: Cassie Pence and Emily Henkel

This fall, the Crested Butte Community School PTA is asking you to show some love for your school during our “Love Your School” Fall Sponsorship and Underwriting Drive. 


  • How much does the PTA raise? Over the course of the school year, we raise and re-invest approximately $115,000 back into CBCS (not including the additional money collected for Teacher/Staff holiday and year-end giving.) This covers nearly 750 students, or about $150 per student.  –> if you have more than one student in the school, consider one of our underwriting sponsorships, beginning at $250.
  • Where does the money go? 37% to Student Programs & Resources; 35% to Teacher/Staff Appreciation; 18% to Parent/Family Engagement; 7% to Education Advocacy; 3% to Admin. Check out What We Fund
  • What does the PTA do? So much more than fundraising, lol…. Consider getting involved! We have volunteer roles with limited time-commitment and some that don’t even require meetings! Check out “Beyond The Dollar” and Leadership Team
  • I paid for a $10 membership– is that part of the fundraising? Our membership dues are not part of our fundraising. Dues represent about 5% of our overall budget, and we expense those back out to our State and National partners. They provide support and resources to us, as a local PTA unit, and they advocate at state and national levels for public education.
  • I want to support but cannot contribute financially at this time–   We understand! In addition to many volunteer opportunities, we also have, for the first time ever, Membership Scholarships. Our membership numbers really help us in advocating for the school. Please consider signing up at no cost– Contact
