The Fundraising Committee is responsible for organizing the annual summer SCYD fundraising event and winter party, including securing community sponsorships to help maintain the fiscal health of the club. Money raised from these fundraisers helps pay for meeting space rentals, social activities, and subsidizing the costs for SCYD members to attend Democratic events across the state. The committee welcomes all levels of participation, and provides training and tools to those with varying levels of experience.
