The Ultimate Leadership Fund
The Ultimate Leadership Fund is FCCLA’s newest annual giving campaign that provides affiliation support grants to chapters in need. Through your generous contribution to the Ultimate Leadership Fund, FCCLA can continue to enhance the lives of youth across the nation. Your support will provide grant dollars to students and chapters who are in need of financial assistance to affiliate within the organization. FCCLA needs your support to continue to be the Ultimate Leadership Experience for students nationwide.
Please consider making a donation today to help FCCLA continue to shape today’s youth for tomorrow’s careers. It is through the support from donors like you that FCCLA is able to continue its work as the premier Career and Technical Student Organization for Family and Consumer Sciences education. We greatly appreciate your ongoing support!
- Individual campaign pages have been created for each chartered state association. Donations made to state pages will first be used for grant applicants from that state. If all of the funds raised by a state are not used prior to the end of the 2020-2021 affiliation year, the funds will be re-designated back to the general fund. (See Re-designation of Contributions)
- Donations cannot be reserved for a specific chapter within the state.
- At the end of the 2020-2021 affiliation year, any unused funds will be used to fulfill any outstanding affiliation balances for chapters.
*Re-Designation of Contributions: In the event that a state association (a) does not use the funds within the 2021 FCCLA fiscal year or (b) affirmatively refuses a contribution earmarked specifically for that state, the contribution will be re-designated as a general contribution to the FCCLA General Fund. These re-designated funds will continue to be used to support FCCLA members.
