PTO is a non-profit organization, any donations we receive are indeed tax deductions
for the individual who makes the contribution. Those who donate by check would have their cancelled check as receipt for their records and those who pay by cash we can give you a receipt.  If you wish to make a donation to Henderson Elementary PTO at any time please contact Tiffany Smith @ or Wendy Taylor @
