Put the Fun in Fundraising!

To send as many members as possible to Convention, chapter members can (and should!) come together to make and execute a plan to fundraise! Fundraising can be really fun, especially when many members of the chapter join in, so get creative with methods your chapter can use to send your members to Phoenix this year. 

Get started by looking through these helpful resources with tips and suggestions your chapter can use to make your plan!
