Why We Raise Money

Richland County School District One’s budget for Brennen covers most facility and staff expenses. They also provide funds to our school based on the number of students enrolled at Brennen. These funds help provide instructional and non-instructional supplies, but it is a small fraction of what is needed to continue our high standard of education at Brennen.

Our PTO budget supplements the Disctrict’s funding to provide our students with hands on learning programs and academic experiences. Our PTO fundraising campaigns provide financial support to fund school projects, materials, field trips, and continuing education programs for our students and staff. Fundraising efforts allow our PTO to provide unique programs and serve our community.

Community Partners

While out shopping, you can easily support the Brennen PTO! We have partnered with several organizations that give back to our school a percentage of qualifying purchases. This is an easy way to support the PTO while doing something you already do on a regular basis. Please encourage grandparents, other family, and friends to sign up for these rewards programs as well. These are small acts that can make a huge difference for our school and children. Learn more about how this program works.
