Start a PTA

Start a PTA

Thank you for your interest in starting a PTA!  The process to get started is very simple.  Once your group is assembled and ready to start, use the link below to apply for an EIN with the IRS.  Then complete our Application for Affiliation form and email or mail the completed form to our office in St. Paul.  We provide the 501(c)3 status, under our group exemption with the IRS.  It is unnecessary to file IRS Form 1023 for our local units.  We also offer bylaws templates to be used for either a PTA or PTSA, which encourages a focus within the group and also helps things run smoothly.  As always, the office manager and volunteers of the MN PTA Board of Directors are available for advice, support and program ideas!
