STATEMENT FROM THE President

"Mercerville PTA Inc. is a small organization that solely relies up support from student families and the community. Our chief goals are to raise money to help supplelment the cost of student field trips. Additionally, we organize family fun events, subsidize assemblies, support teacher appreciation, organize year end trip for outgoing 5th graders. We are a small middle-income school, we do not ask for much. We love our Mercerville Inclusion Family and support it best we can."

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
