Parent Teacher Club
The McKinley Parent Teacher Club (PTC) orchestrates a wide range of activities and services to help supplement the funds our school is allocated by the government, advocate Parent Teacher issues directly to our school board, and raise school spirit. Funds raised by the PTC are overseen by the McKinley School Foundation, a 503(c) 3 nonprofit organization. Because the foundation is a 501(c) 3 organization, all money donated to the McKinley Foundation is tax deductible.
The Foundation sets annual fundraising targets, manages cash donations and creates short- and long-term spending goals.

Immediate Past President: Shari Schlossberg
