Redux: For Profit School, Non-Profit PTO

Redux: For Profit School, Non-Profit PTO was created by Ted Finegold
This was briefly discussed recently, but I am in the middle of this very same question, and would appreciate some specific guidance. The children attend a privately owned school (owned by one of the teachers). We are expanding the school and need additional funding. Instead of moving the school from a for-profit to a non-profit, other parents and I prefer to incorporate a 501(c)(3) non-profit PTO. The PTO would conduct fundraising and use the funds to supplement the school. How far can we go? Can we pay for a new teacher (who would presumable be an employee of the for-profit school)? Can we buy and give materials to the for-profit school? This was insinuated on the other string, and it seems to violate the private benefit/private inurement rules. Then again, I've heard of booster clubs, but they normally benefit a public or non-profit school. Thanks in advance.

Ted: I have exactly the same questions, but have not yet been able to find any resource for help. If you have since found any resource that can answer your questions, I would very much appreciate it if you would post it on this forum.

My recommendation: Call the IRS helpline. www.irs.gov They're very helpful.

Let us know what you learn.
