ASPIRE FUND

GeorgiaDECA is a state chapter International DECA . Both were founded in 1946. DECA's membership exceeds 235,000 in over 4000 campuses around the world. Georgia's was 13326 in 152 high schools across the state. This fund is the established venue for all distributions which provide scholarships and financial assistance to achieving, needing, and deserving students for program participation. Any Georgia DECA chapter, advisor, and student may join the Foundation.. All monies received are distributed to them and are NOT used for Georgia DECA's day to day operating costs.

Revenue generation is derived through donations from chapters. teacher/advisors, students, corporations, exhibit and event fees/sponsorships. This year we want to increase corporate giving and integrate employee participation in classroom visits. During the past two years, the program has expanded into local middle schools who work under the respective high school chapter in their district and a core group of annual donors. We are concentrating on raising awareness of Georgia DECA program and student financial needs.

One of these needs is to build a pool of funds available to pay start-up costs associated with establishing new chapters outside the metropolitan Atlanta area. Chapter expansion to smaller school districts having low/moderate income households and limited budgets, is a priority.

Our distributions currently include but are not limited to:
college scholarships, state chapter/advisor/student achievement awards, special needs and homeless student stipends, state competition winner stipends for training, supplies and materials, travel, and international competition registration fees($120 per student) for state competition winners.

Each of the above described distributions excepting state competition winners, is based on recommendations of local teachers, guidance counselors, administration and parents in some cases. Applications are reviewed by Board Committees for award recommendations in the case of scholarships and individual financial assistance stipends. State competition results are the basis for winner award distributions.

Success of the Foundation's efforts are measured by growth and the smiles on faces of distribution recipients. They have witnessed results of a value based business model and are very thankful for the efforts of the Foundation and for our donors.
