Community building, not just fundraising

Strong PTA's = Better Schools

We believe that PTA’s and PTO’s play a crucial role in our education system and we’re committed to helping them achieve their mission. PTA’s and PTO’s create incredible opportunities for students and parents at our schools from enrichment to connections among our community. 

Although volunteering on a PTO is rewarding, we understand that it can also be challenging to hold a volunteer position. Our leadership team volunteers their time on a leadership board and we’re well aware of the difficulty of raising funds and keeping everyone engaged. This is why we created Classroom Genie. 

By making it easier for PTA’s to raise funds, we are able to support the amazing and valuable work that PTA’s do for our schools. Better PTA’s will create better opportunities for our children, parents, and our community to succeed.
