In order help the school year run smoothly, please follow the below listed guidelines when giving money to the PTA or requesting a reimbursement.

1. Please make all checks payable to DeMasi Elementary PTA unless otherwise specified.

2. In the memo section of your check, please list the specific fundraiser or event the check is for (i.e. Membership, Clothing Sale, Entertainment Books, etc.).

3. When working on a committee and making purchases, please make sure you have the “Tax Exempt Form” with you. We are a non-profit organization and are exempt from paying sales tax. A copy of this form will be on the PTA website at Please note no sales tax will be reimbursed, so be sure to have it with you when shopping for PTA supplies.

4. When making purchases for an event or committee, keep all receipts and fill out the Expense Reimbursement Form (on the PTA website). The committee chairperson needs to sign the reimbursement form before submitting for reimbursement. Please also be sure to keep copies of the reimbursement form and all receipts for your records.
