To meet operating expenses, chapters generally (and almost entirely) rely on annual membership dues. Though some chapters might record a slight investment income, chapters should look for additional ways to add to overall revenue. 

  • Conducting raffles

  • Setting prices for meals slightly higher than cost to make a small profit

  • Selling advertising space in a newsletter (considered unrelated business income under the Internal Revenue Code and generally not taxable)

  • Selling soft drinks or food items at local community or military functions, such as a Memorial Day or Fourth of July parade or celebration, an air show, or an open house

  • Having a potluck dinner for a monthly event and charging the normal dinner fee

  • Silent auctions

  • Golf tournament
