Preventing Theft in Your PTA

Does your PTA have solid internal controls to prevent theft, fraud and embezzlement?  Now is a great time to do a financial "check-up" with your president and treasurer. 

  • Our "Fraud Prevention Checklist" gives you a list of steps your PTA should be taking each month to ensure you are being financially responsible. 
  • The "PTA Financial Management Checklist" is a complete review of financial management practices.  This is completed by the president and treasurer together. Completing this review now will help your PTA prepare for your annual audit, budgeting for next year, ensure you have financial controls in place, insurance in place and have filed IRS and tax forms.
