PTO Fundraising - Building on our Mission


The Saint Thomas More Catholic School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a fundraising and community building organization. 


The funds raised help support projects to enhance the education of Saint Thomas More School’s children. Funds raised also provide Christmas bonuses for faculty and staff and campus technology upgrades and capital improvements. Gifts of time, talent and treasure enhance our school community and make it a special place for our children to live and learn. There are numerous ways that you can make a gift to our school. Each gift is greatly appreciated by our students and faculty.

Please explore the information about our fundraising events and prayerfully consider how you can share your unique gifts with Saint Thomas More School. The PTO’s main message is and has always been: do what you can to help and what feels right and comfortable for you.
