PEP One Fund
In 2020, D65 PTAs voted to implement the PTA Equity Project (PEP) One Fund through the 2023-24 school year. All D65 PTAs pool their fundraising at the end of the school year and the collected funds are distributed to PTAs based on equality and equity calculations. PTAs receive their distribution in July for the following school year. PTAs will be voting on the next extension of One Fund in December 2023. To learn more about PEP One Fund, click this link.
