5 Super Spring-y Fundraising Ideas

With association Career Development Conferences and #DECAICDC just around the corner, fundraising is more important than ever!

Having some funds saved up for your chapter can help alleviate travel expenses and help out competitors with financial needs.

Here are five, fun spring themed fundraising ideas to get you started!

1. Valentine Sales

Celebrate Valentine’s Day by selling customizable valentines that students can send to each other. Start by making some cute Valentine templates and have options to upgrade with candy or stuffed animals. The entire chapter can get involved with creating, marketing, and distributing Valentines in this sweet fundraising idea!

2. Lemonade Stand

Turn lemonade into “lemon-aid” with a classic fundraiser idea! Consider adding baked goods, candy, and even school spirit items to your lemonade stand inventory to increase profits. The entire chapter can get involved with making food items and marketing.

3. Flower Bulb Sales

Welcome in the warmer weather with some beautiful blooms! Many vendors offer flower bulb fundraisers which are a unique way to earn higher profit margins. An example of this type of fundraiser can be found here.

4. Spring Fling

Have your DECA chapter host a “Spring Fling” that can be a dance or carnival. Ticket sales can generate revenue, while DECA gains a greater presence in your school! This is also a great opportunity for members to learn valuable party planning skills.

5. Otis Spunkmeyer Sales

You can never go wrong with freshly baked cookies! Start up a SBE or add to an existing inventory with Otis Spunkmeyer cookies. This DECA corporate partner has many tools for empowering student leaders and your chapter could even earn spots at ICDC and scholarships for college with successful cookie sales.
