The PPE Tiger Fund
Each year, the PTO Executive Board thoughtfully develops a budget based on anticipated income and guided by the strategic plan. Committees, faculty and staff submit budgets for programs that the PTO supports. We maintain a reserve in the bank to cover 20% of operating costs, and at the end of each fiscal year, after an external audit is completed, all excess funds are placed in the Tiger Fund. Due to the economy, our budget for the past two years has been conservative, but the PPE community continues to be amazingly generous, and the Tiger Fund has still grown. The Policy and Planning committee, which consists of teacher, faculty, and parents, meets three times a year to discuss, and grant or decline all requests submitted. There is a specific form used to apply for Tiger Funds which can be found below.
Requests are welcome from faculty, staff and families, and should be submitted to the Co-President for Policy and Planning:
