Thank you for visiting the Georgia DECA Foundation website today. Our mission is one of fundraising to support Georgia DECA students and Chapters having financial needs to participate in an internationally recognized youth self-development and leadership program. We are a 501C3 corporation whose tax deductible donations come from corporations, chapters, advisors, students, and folks like yourself. Our distributions go directly to Georgia chapters and students through our ASPIRE Fund and do not support the day to day operations of Georgia DECA . . . Read More.
The Georgia DECA membership roll last year was 12650 and the goal this school year is 14000. Considering one’s personal contacts and network, this results in our being a very viable channel of distribution for your goods and services. Moreover, there is the great opportunity for participating in the education of tomorrow’s future business leaders and entrepreneurs. . . Learn more.
SPONSOR COMPETITIVE EVENTS
Each year students choose a project to work on for the year. This choice is from 60 projects in five major business arenas. As a Friend of Georgia DECA, your donation creates an ownership right to a specific event. This includes access to classrooms to assist teachers and mentor students, become a member of a Business Advisory Council, judge student performances at competitions, and award presentations at the state conference. A listing of events can be found here. An advertising and promotion package is included involving recognition at each meeting or event and on our website.
Donations made to this fund are used to make individual awards to all first place state conference competition winners' registration fees for the annual international competition. Funds are available to students needing financial assistance as recognized by their teachers, their administrators, and guidance counselors. Additional dollars are distributed to underserved to cover membership costs, costs associated with various Georgia DECA functions, and attending project training sessions. Community service donations are also distributed from this fund.
SPONSOR MEETINGS, SPEAKERS, OR WORKSHOPS
During the school year GA DECA provides meetings and workshops for both teachers and students aimed at advanced education and improving leadership skill development. This presents an opportunity for GA DECA to promote your company, its brand, and its products and/or services.
Each year at our state conference, various chapters are recognized for achievements in membership growth and development. Five awards are recognized for such areas as largest chapter, chapter with largest growth over last years' numbers, new chapter growth, and largest alumni enrollment.
