Why is raising money so important?

The PTA raises funds to maintain the quality of education at Chandler Elementary School.  Programs, staff, infrastructure, and enrichment that used be supported by LAUSD (including the performing and visual arts, technology, physical education, and more) are now financed or supplemented by the PTA.  Please invest in our school and ask your employer if they offer corporate matching!

For every fundraising event, Chandler Elementary PTA also endeavors to run non-fundraising projects and programs that support the PTA mission of parent involvement, children’s well being, community betterment and cooperation between school and home. The PTA will use the funds obtained through the programs below to directly benefit our children & our school. 


How it's done.
