The Bryan Station High School PTSA has an annual operating budget of approximately $3000. Membership fees, donations and fund raising events provide the revenue to fullfill the budget requirements.

The BSHS PTSA Executive Board feels that the PTSA should provide joint fund raising opportunities for any BSHS club, student organization, team, booster group, etc. that would like to participate. Joint fund raising means that participating groups use the fund raiser as a vehicle to raise money for their selected group. Each group agrees to share the cost of the fund raiser. Profits for each group are then derived from the total revenue raised by each group less the group's share of the cost.

The BSHS PTSA Fund Raising Committee leads the joint fund raising effort. To participate in the 2010/2011 PTSA joint fund raisers, a group must be represented on this committee. The Sponsorship Drive Document explains the fund raising projects the Committee is currently executing. To join the committee, or for more information, please contact the Chairperson: Skip Rafferty.

Program Background

Amazon.com allows volunteers from non-profit organizations to wrap gifts during the holiday season each year. Based on the number of gifts wrapped by the volunteers, Amazon makes a donation to that organization. The Bryan Station High School PTSA allows volunteers from any BSHS group participating in the PTSA Sponsorship Drive to participate under the PTSA contract. Please see the flyer from Amazon for more information. Please ignore the "To participate" paragraph on this flyer since the information is intended for organizations, not individuals. Amazon.com has also provided a list of Frequently Asked Questions to improve understanding of this program.

2010 Program Instructions

Amazon is managing volunteers and shift assignments online using CERVIS Volunteer and Event Management software. Volunteer "wrappers" must create an amazon.com CERVIS login ID (one time), then select from available shifts by selecting the Register/Unregister for an Event link on the 'Service Events' page of the 'amazon.com CERVIS' web page. First time volunteers, please see the Detailed Registration Instructions to assist you in creating your login ID.
