Treasurers September, 2010

Fundraising Ideas and Projects Aluminum Cans o Collect cans in a race to see which class (freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors) can collect the most cans. Set up four recycling bins in the cafeteria. When the race is over turn in the cans to your local recycling center.

Face painting o In your school during lunchtime or at a local sport game or festival, set up a face painting booth. Get artsy Key Clubbers or your Art Club at school to help paint faces.

Finals Survival Kits o Sell final exam survival kits for students. These kids can include a candy bar, pen/pencils, gum, jokes, inspirational messages, etc. Deliver these in school via homeroom, lunch periods, or study halls. Sell them before, at during, and after school.

Flea Market o Collect “junk” from members, people in school, and Kiwanians, and sell them at a flea market.

Start of School Dance o Hold a dance within the first month of school. Raffle off school supplies such as a pack of pencils/pens, notebooks, etc. It could serve as a social, for everyone to see their friends again and meet new people.

students love ice cream and not all love paying dues. Therefore give each member who pays dues by a certain date (preferably a date of a meeting) a small ice cream bar, cone, etc.

FLOF September, 2010

Florida Opportunity Fund (FLOF) What is FLOF? The Florida Opportunity Fund (FLOF) is the Florida District’s grant system. FLOF can supply anywhere from $100 to $1000 for any Key Club’s community service project that fits the qualifications.

Why would a club apply for FLOF? Let’s say that your club wants to hold a Walk-A-Thon to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network and it costs $1000, but the club has only collected $500 and has exhausted all means of fundraising. Your club can receive $500 from FLOF to put on your walk! As simple as an application, your club can receive easy money for any qualifying service project you want to hold.

Where does FLOF money come from? Out of the $4.50 District dues, $1 goes towards the Florida Opportunity Fund.

How do we apply for FLOF? You may apply for FLOF by going to http://www.FloridaKeyClub.com/FLOF/howtoapplyforFLOF and then submitting an application.

Who can get money from FLOF? Any Key Club in the Florida District can get a grant as long as they are qualified (go here to see if your club fits the qualifications: http://www.floridakeyclub.com/wpcontent/uploads/downloads/2010/08/Qualifications-for-FLOF.pdf). The club must approve as a project of that club any service project for which the club is applying for a FLOF grant.

To learn more about FLOF visit,

http://www.FloridaKeyClub.com/FLOF Going Green The Florida District of Key Club International's grant system, FLOF, is excited to announce that we are finally going green! For the past six year countless sheets of paper have been used to print and mail application all over Florida, wasting money and trees. This year FLOF is completely online, so no printing, signing, or mailing will occur. By eliminating the unnecessary printing of the application, we have reduced greatly the amount of paper used and trees wasted greatly. So please join us, be green, and do not print your application unless absolutely necessary.
