Financial Policies FAQS
How much can I spend?
Know the amount of your event/program's budget and stay within that limit. We are spending on behalf of our membership. Therefore, our members must vote on and approve our budget in advance of expenditures. Contact your CRS PTA Vice President, Treasurer, or President for questions about your budget.
If your committee needs to increase its budget, submit your request to your CRS PTA Vice President.
If your program generates revenue, the expense constraint will be determined by the revenue and resulting profit you expect to earn on your event. Please work with your respective VP to create and submit your Plan of Work for approval.
For class fund expenditures, please work with your grade's treasurer liaison to confirm your allocated budget, which must come from the available class funds for your grade.
How do I get reimbursed?
Keep all receipts & invoices! We can't reimburse without an itemized receipt or invoice. Work with your respective officer, committee chair, or class fund treasurer to submit your reimbursement request. Keep a copy of all documents! You must submit all reimbursement requests no later than 30 days after purchase or the last day of school, whichever is sooner. Reimbursement requests not submitted per the deadlines will not be reimbursed.
Tip: If you plan to make purchases for your personal use at the same store, please set those items apart and pay for them in a separate transaction. Save your original, itemized receipt. Credit card receipts that only show the total amount charged, without detailing items purchased or taxes paid, cannot be accepted. Unused items should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund before submitting for reimbursement.
How long does it take to get reimbursed?
Please submit your receipts ASAP! The sooner you submit, the sooner the CRS PTA can reimburse you — typically, you will receive reimbursement via postal mail in about two weeks.
Can a vendor be paid directly by the CRS PTA?
Yes. If you have an invoice from the vendor, please complete the disbursement/reimbursement form and submit the itemized invoice. The check will be sent directly to the vendor by the CRS PTA. If payment by check is not possible, please contact the Treasurer and PTA officer overseeing your area for assistance.
