“Bucks for Books”

Instructions / Criteria / Guidelines / Checklist [PDF]

State Goal $40,000

DEADLINE: January 25, 2017 

By participating in the New Jersey 2017-2018 Statewide Community Service Project, each chapter completing the project will learn important business skills, and also serve their community and society as a whole. Our statewide goal is to have 50 chapters raise the goal amount.


All proceeds from this project will be donated to the Bridge of Books Foundation in Rumson, NJ.  This project is unique in that it is run solely by DECA members who understand the importance of community service. By sponsoring this project, New Jersey DECA hopes to create a greater awareness of the amazing outcomes of community service.
