How Fundraising Supports JROTC Ideals
The goal of the JROTC is to help students enable cadets to better serve their country as leaders, as citizens, and in military service should they enter it. It does this through:
- Developing discipline.
- Developing self-reliance and responsiveness to all authority.
- Improving the ability to communicate well both orally and in writing.
- Developing citizenship & patriotism.
- Developing a knowledge of team building skills and basic military skills.
Our fundraising programs will also help your cadets to build these core character traits.
ROTC cadets need to buy uniforms. Further, some ROTC units host an annual formal military ball, formal dinner and award ceremony. In addition, some units organize trips to visit US military bases during school breaks or attend summertime “leadership academies”. All of these things require funding. This is where our profitable fundraising products come in handy. In fact, you will love our ideas for JROTC.
Cadet fundraising using brochures
Furthermore, our brochures sell items that your friends and families will WANT to buy. Imagine how much money your school can raise selling cookie dough, gourmet popcorn or gift wrap? Yet this is just a drop in the bucket of what our fundraising catalogs offer.
Does the idea of free brochures and free shipping appeal to you? Then read on how we can help you.
