Support VA DECA

Alumni, Corporate, Friends of DECA

Without the support of our schools, parents, business partners and alumni our organization would not thrive. 

Financial Support


Scholarships are provided by the Virginia DECA Foundation.  VA DECA members interested in careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, management or Marketing Education may apply for a $1000 scholarship.  If you would like to help fund these scholarships please visit the VA DECA Foundation website.
