School Business Club Fundraising Ideas | DECA, BPA & FBLA

A painting depicting a firm handshake between honest businessmen.

High schools across the nation have found business clubs to be one of the most valuable resources for ambitious, goal-oriented students. These groups allow like-minded students to foster relationships, build skills, and participate in a useful exchange of ideas and information. They also look great on job and college applications!

Like any student organization, business clubs incur expenses as they operate. Clubs need money for meetings, projects, supplies, and travel. In business clubs, fund management takes on a new dimension as club members can gain experience in dealing with an organization’s money.

Fundraising for business clubs is an opportunity, not a chore. That’s because Rada Cutlery is here to help.
