NLC Fundraising Ideas

FCCLA’s National Leadership Conference is just around the corner, and we could all use some extra spending money for San Antonio. Here are some simple but, great fundraising ideas to help you prepare for your trip to Texas.Can Drive: So many people have leftover aluminum cans and glass bottles lying around, and many of them are willing to donate to your cause. Once you collect a good amount,  spend a couple hours recycling them at a local grocery store or recycling center. Also, you are helping the environment by recycling.

Bake Sale: Who doesn’t love a good cupcake or chocolate chip cookie?  Bake up some of your favorites treats and sell them during a community event or in front of  a local business.

Car Wash: It’s getting warmer outside, and this popular idea can help you raise quite a bit of money. Just get a few people from your chapter together, add some soap, water, sponges, towels and you’re set!

Pancake Feed: Many restaurants, will allow you to host pancake feeds in their restaurants. See if there are any locations around you or host one at your school. If a pancake feed doesn’t work out, see if the restaurant will sponsor “FCCLA Night” where anyone that comes in and mentions FCCLA, 10% of the bill will go to your chapter.

Yard Work: All you have to do is go around your neighborhood and see if anyone would like you to do yard work or any other job for them. It’s fairly easy, and a great way to earn some extra cash.

Babysitting: Have any family members or friends with young kids? Offer to babysit for them one night while they go out.

Hopefully, these ideas can help you in raising money for your trip to NLC this summer. If you have another great idea, be sure and let us know by telling us on Facebook or twitter @oregonfccla.
