To accomplish everything this year, Dilworth’s PTA Operating budget for 2023-2024 is roughly $50,000. Spark is our primary source for funding our budget. Once the Dilworth PTA budget is voted on and approved, we will publish it on the Dilworth PTA website. This will happen mid to late September 2023.
