How can your chapter become further actively involved with FBLA activities? Below are some fundraisers and activities for your chapter to try.
Community Service Awards: FBLA members may earn recognition for community service. To register students and for the student login, visit fbla.org/CSA.
Cookie Dough Fundraiser A longtime FBLA classic, many Rhode Island chapters sell cookie dough from this Tomwat fundraising catalogue. If your chapter would like to raise funds for the upcoming holiday season, this activity will resonate perfectly with the student body, and sharpen business and marketing skills as well.
FBLA Mini Marketplace What better way to simulate the logistics of owning a real business than to open up a school store? Your chapter could sell school supplies, clothing, or even food. There are limitless places to make money, including school football games, school cafeterias, and hallways. Students could even earn internship or community service hours for volunteering their time to the store.
March of Dimes FBLA is partnered nationally with the March of Dimes, an organization that collects money to fund research related to premature births, among other serious conditions. Assist your chapter in setting up a fundraiser for March of Dimes, or participate in the March for Babies, the iconic walk to end premature births.
Non-Stop November: Non-Stop November begins November 1. Preview the activities and encourage your FBLA members to start planning for American Enterprise Day (November 15) and prematurity awareness (March of Dimes) projects. Need ideas to promote Prematurity Awareness? Click on this form to request a toolkit from the March of Dimes. To contact the RI March of Dimes:
TomWat: The officers are doing this fundraiser once again this year. Advisers receive the new catalogs in the mail. Please support their efforts to raise funds for your chapter and the state. Many great items for gifts!
