Sponsorships and Partnerships and Donations


Forming relationships with sponsors and partners can effectively help local, council, and region PTA units to further their goals.

In the Utah PTA Board Handbook, Sponsorships and Partnerships are defined as follows:

  • Sponsor: A sponsor is a person or organization that provides service or support for a PTA project or activity in return for recognition as a sponsor of PTA.
  • Partner: A partnership is an agreement between PTA and another entity or organization in which the PTA and the partner work in cooperation for mutual benefit.

There are specific legal rules and regulations governing non profit organizations relationships with sponsors and partners, particularly when monies are involved and when acknowledging these relationships. Please work closely with your PTA treasurer to make sure these rules are followed to maintain your non profit status.
