The Ultimate Leadership Fund

Each year, FCCLA offers members a distinctive opportunity for immersive leadership development, community involvement, and career preparation. By joining FCCLA, students acquire college- and career-readiness skills that empower them to become leaders in their families, careers, and communities. 

Launched in 2020, the Ultimate Leadership Fund is FCCLA's annual mission-driven giving campaign. This campaign is dedicated to nurturing the organization's growth while directly addressing the unique needs of its valued members and chapters across the nation. The campaign allocates funds to provide support grants for member affiliations, grants for chapters and individuals, recognition for Competitive Events, and targeted assistance in areas of greatest need.

FCCLA supporters allow the organization to continue to enhance Family and Consumer Sciences education in the classroom while establishing FCCLA as the premier Family and Consumer Sciences career pathway organization.

We invite you to make a contribution today to support FCCLA members nationwide. Your generous donation will not only nurture emerging leaders but also help create stronger communities and fortify the foundations of Family and Consumer Sciences education. Give today to make a lasting impact!
