Georgia DECA Foundation Mission.

The GEORGIA DECA FOUNDATION supports GEORGIA DECA and its membership while promoting direct involvement of the business community who partner in the education, personal development, and vocational guidance of the individual student. We award scholarships to the deserving, recognize personal achievement, providefinancial assistance to the under-served, and create opportunities for emerging leaders in marketing, management, finance, hospitality, and entrepreneurship.

Who Is the Georgia DECA Foundation?

Georgia DECA is a state chapter of DECA Inc., an international student career organization of 227,000 members around the globe. Last school year, its membership was 15360 students (2nd largest high school chapter in the world) and this year, it will exceed that number. Considering one’s personal contacts and network, this results in a very viable channel of distribution for your goods and services.

The Foundation is an independent 501C3 entity which fundraises for the benefit of Georgia DECA students and advisors, and its distributions do not support the daily operations of Georgia DECA.

Students are encouraged to participate in challenging and comprehensive competitions which can be seen in the Competitive Events.

Corporate sponsorship support through our “Partners” program, assure completion of our mission.
