Noncommercial Policy

All PTA bylaws, whether unit, council, district, state or National, require the association to be noncommercial.

This noncommercial policy also means that the name “PTA,” which is a registered service mark, or the names of its officers shall not be used in conjunction with the commercial activities of other organizations including, but not limited to, the promotion of their goods and services. This policy should be applied with judgment, discretion, and common sense, recognizing that it is not meant to prohibit all contact or cooperation with such groups.

Before accepting donations of goods or services, a PTA organization, at any level, should consider whether such acceptance might be construed as an endorsement of the provider.
