JavaScript How to Add Up Prices?

I'm trying to add all the values from a <p> tag for a total. Not sure what I'm doing wrong?

<p class="align-self-end account-paragraph">$250.10</p>

<p class="align-self-end account-paragraph">$25.34</p>

<p class="align-self-end account-paragraph">$50.07</p>

<p class="align-self-end account-paragraph">$75.42</p>


function _dtmGetFundingAmt() {
    var arr_p = document.querySelectorAll("p");
    var element = null;
    var totalFundingAmt = 0.00;
    for (var i = 0; i < arr_p.length; i++) {
        if (arr_p[i].textContent.replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g, "").indexOf("$") >= 0) {
            element = arr_p[i];
            var elemVal = element.textContent;
            elemVal = elemVal.replace(/\$/g, '');
            elemVal = parseInt(elemVal);
            elemVal = elemVal.toFixed(2);
            totalFundingAmt += elemVal;
            console.log("totalFundingAmt : " + totalFundingAmt);

    return totalFundingAmt;

var total = _dtmGetFundingAmt();
console.log("#### results : " + total);
