Exchange Club Fundraising Ideas

The National Exchange Club is a service organization throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. It was founded by business leaders who wanted to “exchange” ideas on making their community better. Its’ core values – Family, Community and Country are held by each Exchange member with pride and commitment. For over one hundred years, Exchange Club fundraising efforts have supported the needs of the country and of local communities, making it the country’s oldest American service organization operating exclusively in the U.S. Fundraising can be challenging, but it’s also very rewarding.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Jackson, GA, Once a year, the Butts County Fairgrounds became a proving ground for Southern barbecue, during the Smokin’ Pork-n-Butts Bar-b-que Cook-off and Festival fundraiser.  In California, The Exchange Club of San Clemente has an annual “Art for Kids Sake” art auction and wine tasting fundraiser to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of the South Coast Area. Fundraisers by other Exchange Clubs include dinners, product sales, walking horse shows, golf outings, bingo, dances, talent shows, and frog hunts.
