RMS Calendar


Donate to the Bear Paw Fund

Did you know anyone can donate directly to our "Bear Paw Fund" without becoming a PTSA member? You, your family, friends, and neighbors can all donate to help our students; membership to the RMS PTSA is not required. Please share the link below!

Direct Donation Link: https://rmsptsa.org/Page/PTSA/Donate

Why donate to the Bear Paw Fund? Our PTSA contributes financial support to our school, as well as provides critically needed volunteers. Additionally, we provide quality programs and experiences to enhance our children's education. However, this important work cannot be achieved without the generous donations of money and time from our families! Please visit RMS PTSA Programs webpage to find out how your contributions are used throughout the school year. RMS PTSA is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible.

Corporate/Employer Matching
DOUBLE your donations too if your company offers employer matching! Don't forget to go to your company's giving website and report your RMS PTSA donation.

Thank you to do those that have donated already this year to the RMS PTSA!
