FCCLA Fundraising Ideas

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) formerly known as Future Homemakers of America, is a nonprofit U.S. career and technical student organization for young men and women in family and consumer science education in public and private schools through grade 12 across the United States. FCCLA members are often called upon to do a fundraiser for their chapter. Fundraising can be very challenging, especially in a tough economy.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Knoxville, a  fundraising project by FCCLA students was a fundraiser for Camp Heart Connection, which is a specialty summer camp for kids with cancer. The group raised money by setting off floating lanterns during living windows and collecting donations throughout the year. The North Dakota an FCCLA rfundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network., consisted of selling Rips, or fruit juice slushies, on Fridays. Fundraisers by other FCCLA chapters include dating games, slow pitch softball tournaments, restaurant nights, raffles, product sales, can drives, carnivals, data matches, babysitting, and face painting.

Spirit Chain – This is a great fundraiser for high school students, but could be used with other groups. Have a competition within the different classes in the school (senior, junior, sophomore and freshmen) to see who has the most school spirit. Each class has two colors that their paper chain consists of. Sell each strip of paper for 25 or 50 cents. Read more…
