Do's & Don'ts Reminders

As Treasurer, you often need to remind your exec board and association of what is allowable per IRS rules and guidelines. Take a moment during your first meeting the year to remind them of the following:


  • If gift cards/certificates are something you’re seeking, ask them to be donated
  • Have 2 check signers for every check issued
  • Use a Fiduciary Agreement when gifting/granting money to school
  • Ask for original receipts for reimbursements
  • Follow the 5% rule for hospitality including Staff Appreciation and keep hospitality expenses 5% or lower than your total annual expenses
  • Communicate a set time period (usually 90days) in which all reimbursement checks should be cashed otherwise funds return to PTA general fund


  • Do not PURCHASE gift cards/certificates with PTA funds
  • Do not purchase PERSONAL GIFTS with PTA funds for teachers, staff, students, families or PTA Board
  • Do not encumber future boards with finances or contracts
  • Do not sign a contract on your own. All contracts must be approved by the association and signed by 2 elected officers -one being the President
Financial Forms & Websites

Our Council Annual Assessment is $60 this year. Please note this in your budget as well and include your Annual Assessment, payable to Irvine Unified PTA, with your first remittance. Additionally, your membership dues are due to Council before or on the date of each monthly council meeting. Please coordinate with your President and VP Membership for accurate and timely remittances.

Kick-off – What we need from all units at start of new year!

Please email to council treasurer your 2022-2023 Annual Financial Report and your 2023-2024 Budget Report once they have been presented and your budget has been approved and adopted at your Executive and Association meetings. We will upload them to myPTez. Your President may also upload them into myPTez.

Planning a Raffle?

If your PTA plans to host a raffle, your unit is required by the state of California to fill out forms CT-NRP-1 and CT-NRP-2. CT-NRP-1 must be filled out 60 days prior to your raffle. It might be wise to file one even if your PTA is unsure of holding a raffle or not.  Please consider an opportunity drawing (not selling a chance to win something) in place of a raffle. Remember, in no instance are you allowed to sell and distribute raffle tickets online.
