Why Join PTA?

PTA membership shows your passionate support for schools and public education.

PTAs work in partnership with schools and communities to ensure children have the greatest opportunity to reach their potential.

PTAs at the local, State and National levels advocate on behalf of children on matters of education, health and safety.  Higher membership numbers indicate greater support for these initiatives.  In fact, there are nearly 500,000 PTA members in Texas, of which more than 18,000 are PTA members in the RISD Council of PTAs.  Your membership counts, quite literally, and reflects that you indeed Back The Future.

Thank you PTA Angels for backing the future together


As a PTA Angel, your generosity and dedication to education set you apart through your significant commitment to RISD and 38,000+ students.  You'll be recognized on the RISD Council of PTAs website and newsletter and receive a certificate of appreciation and window decal.  The PTAs you thoughtfully support will be informed about your generosity and might honor you, too.
