Volunteer Appreciation

A simple and appropriate way to thank volunteers for their time and effort supporting the PTA is to plan and budget for a volunteer appreciation event near the end of the school year. Invite all volunteers who helped with PTA activities and programs during the year. The PTA may present each volunteer with a certificate of recognition. If the PTA wishes to reward volunteers with personal gifts, the association may vote to do so and seek out donations to cover those items. Alternatively, officers or other members may make donations to pay for such items.

The PTA may also wish to consider recognizing volunteers through the California State PTA Honorary Service Award Program.

Personal gifts or gifts for individuals, such as PTA members or school staff, cannot be purchased with PTA funds.
