Raising money for your chapter is important to help plan activities, parties, field trips, and to cover your chapter dues. These activities require a budget for transportation and food.
The first step when you are planning to fundraise is to figure out how much money your chapter needs for the entire year. Once you know how much money you need, you can then determine the best way to raise that money for your chapter.
Read through the pages on the left to see which types of fundraising will work for your chapter and the best practices for planning them.
Before beginning to plan a fundraising event, look into campus resources. How are other service organizations or clubs on campus funded? Have you applied for funding through your student government? You may only need to fill out a couple of forms. Do it! Work with your advisor to see what options your chapter has through school funding.
