Why DECA fundraising?

As a long-standing and well-known organization, DECA has helped thousands of students reach their dream careers in hospitality, finance, marketing, and management. With support for high school and college students, DECA has a wide-reaching approach to its education and services. If you’re interested in fundraising for a worthy cause that benefits students with membership, events, and resources, then DECA is a good choice for your school or higher education facility.

Ideas for DECA fundraising

Want to try fundraising for DECA but not sure where to start? Here are a few ideas to help you create successful, functional campaigns that your community will want to support and donate to:

Supporting schools in gaining chapter membership

The best way that schools can benefit from DECA is by signing up for chapter membership. Fundraising for this membership can ensure children from all walks of life can participate in the DECA club. This club provides equal opportunities for young adults to benefit from the different resources, services, and tools that DECA offers to help them find their way into many other careers. With membership required to form a chapter, fundraising to cover that cost is an excellent way to get your community involved.

Maintaining chapter status in the long-term

To maintain the DECA chapter status, organizations and schools must cover ongoing costs and dues to remain active. Fundraising to cover these costs in the future can provide continuous access to DECA’s comprehensive resources, services, and benefits, providing students aging into careers with the same excellent opportunities as the current students. They benefit from DECA’s services and connections. In addition, yearly fundraisers for chapter status are a perfect way to do an annual donation drive to raise awareness and talk about the importance of DECA for your specific school or college.

Providing DECA-recommended resources to help students succeed

As a career specialist, DECA can provide students with great resources and opportunities to help them succeed. While many of these resources can be free, in some cases, additional costs and fees may apply through outside organizations. Fundraising to supplement your DECA membership can offer even more opportunities for students to succeed, supporting them in kickstarting their careers and getting the help they need to go further and do more.

Traveling to conventions and events

One of DECA’s most significant benefits is the numerous conventions and events they host or recommend for students. As vital networking and learning opportunities, attending these international events or cross-country conferences can provide students with incredible resources. Funding for specific events and conventions is an excellent way to set an achievable goal for the local community and parents, raising funds for a particular purpose that will benefit educators and students alike. The ICDC (International Career Development Conference) should be at the top of your list for fundraising for your students, along with plenty of other DECA-sponsored events throughout the year.

Funding the international work that DECA does every day

If you’re already a member of DECA and cover all dues and fees, directly raising money for their incredible work is an excellent way to support the organization. Creating a fundraiser for any of DECA’s promotional campaigns, advocacy campaigns, or community campaigns are excellent ways to raise awareness. Getting your students involved in charitable acts can make all the difference to other communities, children, and schools worldwide.

Providing students with additional support alongside DECA

DECA is an incredible resource that provides many students with excellent career guidance and support. Still, educators and organizations can also supplement and go beyond what DECA offers to further benefit their students. Whether it’s creating scholarships for educational opportunities or fundraising for a secondary organization that DECA supports, there are thousands of ways to donate that can benefit your students and enhance their lives. By helping students find their place in successful careers, you can support them in the long term to achieve more than they thought possible.
