ACJA Fundraising Ideas

The objectives of the American Criminal Justice Association – Lambda Alpha Epsilon (ACJA-LAE) are to improve criminal justice through educational activities and to foster professionalism in law enforcement personnel and agencies, among other goals. This often means chapters need to throw fundraisers in order to meet these objectives.

One of the biggest decisions can be deciding what kind of fundraiser to have. At the University of New Hampshire, ACJA’s Fundraising Committee sells paracord bracelets for $8 which come in either Blue/White or Blue/Yellow. In Nashville at Remington College, the college’s chapter’s first event raised money for the Nashville Campus student fund by selling hot dog meals to students on their breaks.
