PTA Fundraising


Birney relies upon the generosity of its family, community and businesses in order to provide the best educational experience for its students.  We have a number of fundraising events scheduled throughout the school year to fund the PTA budget.  If you have any ideas for fundraisers or would like to volunteer to assist us with our efforts, please contact the Birney PTA Board at or any of the chairs listed under each of these events.
