Crowds at Easter Road have risen to just over 10,000 in recent weeks as the team have reached second place in the SPL table.
Season tickets sales are currently at 8000 but Petrie is targeting 11,000 season ticket sales in order to invest in the team when the transfer window opens in January.
In a statement on the club's website, Petrie said: "Home attendances are growing from the low level reached following two years of under-performance on the pitch.
"We have tried to match the ambitions of supporters by investing in the team - the signing of James McPake was something that everyone wanted to see.
"We would like to do more to help Pat sustain that improvement again in the January transfer window. That will depend on our core source of income - receipts from attendances at home games between now and the turn of the year.
"There is no magic wand - everyone needs to do what they can, but only if they can, in these times of economic hardship.
"We are impatient and want to do more. However, we can only operate within the resources available to us from supporters."
