AMES FOUNDATION AND PTSO
Welcome to the AMES Foundation and PTSO!
The Academy for Math, Engineering & Science (AMES) Foundation is a
charitable [IRC501©(3)] organization established for the exclusive purpose of benefiting AMES
and its students. It is governed by a Board of Directors who serve voluntarily to apply all
Foundation assets for this purpose.
The Foundation includes, within its organizational umbrella, the Parent, Teacher, Student
Organization (PTSO) and over the years, has assisted the school in public relations, recruiting
students, and assisting with events for the benefit or participation of AMES students. The
Foundation is available to help provide equipment or services to students in need.
Donations to the Foundation can identify a specific activity or can be deposited into the
general account where those funds can be used for costs and expenses of the school or its
students that are beyond AMES budget constraints or outside scholastic programing limitations.

To Donate to the AMES Foundation*:
AMES Parent Teacher Student Organization’s (PTSO) is the parent volunteer
arm of the AMES Foundation. Its mission is to lend support to students, their families and AMES
teachers during the school year. The PTSO is a stronger organization when we reflect all of the
cities, diverse backgrounds, and varied interests of the AMES students and families. We are a
group that values any contribution of time from our AMES family. Please consider joining us!
Our PTSO organizes and funds AMES student dances, dinners for teachers and staff
during Parent/Teacher Conferences, breakfasts for students before ACT and PSAT tests, Open
Mic night, teacher appreciation week, a graduation party, etc. This organization is only possible
with YOUR help. Being involved is a great way to support your student(s).
Volunteer meetings are monthly. A Zoom Link and an agenda will be sent a few days
before each meeting. Please DO attend our PTSO meetings, share your thoughts and ideas,
lend a hand if you can.
The PTSO is a volunteer organization. In order to fund the activities we organize, we

we do go directly to support the AMES students and teachers!
