What does a Fundraising Committee Chair Do?

With the help of the

Board and Other Members:

  • Plan a Fall and Spring Fundraiser​

  • Be the main contact between the fundraising company and us


  • Plan parent pick-up (if needed) 

with the Volunteer Coordinator

  • Deliver Fundraising Prizes as needed to the schools

The CMPTA supports over 2200 students 
and 400 staff members.


Your donations help fund many student and staff programs such as field trips, staff appreciation, family events and more.  

We are a non-profit organization and rely solely on fundraising and donations in order to operate.  With budget cuts and other pressures, PTA fundraising is more important than ever.  


We truly appreciate your participation in our fundraisers.  

Dine N' Shares

Dine N' Shares are a great way to spend time

together as a family and help out our schools

at the same time. When you eat out during our

Dine N' Shares, a portion of your purchase goes

back to Chesak or Martin. Bring the whole family

and bring your appetite to help raise funds for

the Chesak/Martin PTA!
