Your Contributions Make an Important Difference

Contributions to the Annual Fund are used for important programs and projects, as well as day-to-day operations at Maryland PTA.  Since it is impossible for Maryland PTA to fund all of the worthy and important programs it would like to support, it must depend on the generosity of PTA members and supporters, through contributions to our Annual Fund.

Through the Annual Fund, PTA members and donors are able to have a profound and lasting impact on the broad community we represent—parents, teachers, students, and communities.   Because of our donors and members demonstrated dedication, compassion, and commitment, PTA is able to address important community issues, such as arts in education, parent involvement  and healthy lifestyles.

Your gift will be put to work immediately on behalf of all of Maryland’s children.  Thank you for your support of PTA and its mission. 

Annual Fund donations can be made online with the button below or simply mailing a check (made payable to Maryland PTA), a letter outlining the purpose of the gift, to the following address:

Glen Burnie, MD 21061





Have you checked the status of your unit's incorporation? 

If you are not considered  "In Good Standing" by the Maryland Department of Assessments, you need to contact them (410-767-1350) to find out what is required to bring you into Good Standing. Not being in good standing can result in the loss of your incorporation and the protection it provides.  It will cause your local to not be in good standing, and thus not be able to participate in several of our programs and benefits.  This loss of standing by the MD Dept of State is usually a result of not filing your property tax report. 


Check your status at

  • Click on Business Data Search

From National Center for Charitable Statistics, Urban Institute


To Users of 990 and ePostcard (990-N):
The Urban Institute’s National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS) recently discovered that an unauthorized party or parties have accessed the Form 990 Online and e-Postcard filing systems for nonprofit organizations. This unauthorized access affected nonprofit users of IRS Forms 990, 990-EZ, and 990-N (e-Postcard). In addition, it affected users of Form 8868 extensions and filings for charitable organizations in Hawaii, Michigan, and New York.
Once they discovered the attack, they contacted the IRS and made every effort to secure the systems and user accounts. NCCS is working with law enforcement agencies as they conduct an investigation. In addition, NCCS has retained a leading cybersecurity firm to help analyze the situation and strengthen security.
The compromised forms do not contain Social Security numbers, credit card data, or individual tax filer information, so such sensitive information was not available to the hackers. Copies of the 990 returns, including the e-Postcard, are public documents that are released by the IRS.
NCCS sincerely apologizes for this disruption and any inconvenience this incident may cause. The investigation is ongoing.
If you have any questions, please visit their FAQ where you can obtain further information. You may also email NCCS at or call 1-800-564-9110 if you have more questions.
