JA’s Annual Fundraising Campaign
One of Junior Achievement’s largest fundraising efforts, The Annual Fundraising Campaign, solicits funds from corporations, individuals, and foundations throughout the region. The contributions are used to support JA programs throughout western Pennsylvania.
JA also looks to corporate and/or community leaders to head the Annual Fundraising Campaign who are well known in the area and are in a position to help Junior Achievement reach its constituents. The proceeds collected from the Annual Fundraising Campaign directly benefit JA’s programs throughout western PA, and help to impact the lives of over 60,500 students!
Todd Moules of First Niagara Bank heads this year’s Campaign as the Chairman, and Steve Blass of the ’71 World Championship Pirates team assists as Honorary Chairman.

Each year nearly 3,000 volunteers go into area schools to present JA’s K-12 business curriculum to more than 65,000 students. Volunteers make the curriculum come alive by sharing their own experiences in business and life, and by bringing relevance to what students are learning in the classroom.

Whole School Sponsorships (JA in a Day)-

High School ~ $7,000
Since learning also happens outside the school day and outside the school walls, JA partners with local after school program providers to reach students outside the classroom.
