How the Ohio FCCLA Endowment Supports the Ohio FCCLA Association

· Sponsorship of Regional Career Development Events
· Sponsorship of Ohio FCCLA Leadership Conference
· State and National Leadership activities
· Scholarships for advanced degrees in Family and Consumer Sciences or other careers

The fund was established July 1, 1991. The Endowment is administered by a Board of Trustees to assist the Ohio FCCLA Association in its mission to develop bright, responsible leaders. The first goal was to obtain $100,000 in the Endowment. At the 1996 State Leadership Conference, members realized the accomplishment of this goal. To contribute go to www.ohiofcclaendowment.com/donation-forms.php
Ohio Alumni & Associates News
The Alumni will have a booth at conference and sell FCCLA nationally approved clothing.  The items for sale will include FCCLA polo shirts and FCCLA dress shirts.  Also, there will be FCCLA Hoodies and long sleeve tee shirts available for purchase.  Attendees may make purchases with cash and checks.  Items will be available for sale on August 1-2, 2016.  As a special gift to teachers attending the conference, anyone that joins the Ohio FCCLA Alumni and Associates during the conference will be given the first year of membership free.  The Ohio FCCLA Alumni and Associates uses the sales of FCCLA merchandise to create finances to provide grants and other items for the Ohio FCCLA program.
