RFA Speech & Debate Club Fundraiser


Dear Supporters,

We qualified to compete in the New York State Speech & Debate Championships to be held April 29th & 30th at Hofstra University in Uniondale, New York!  Our team won and placed in several local National Speech and Debate Association competitions to qualify for the championships.  We need your help to attend the championships! 

The Rome City School District will be able to provide transportion for us to attend the championships, but we need help in covering the remaining costs including our entry fee, hotel rooms, transportation and meals.  The total budgeted cost is $4,500 including transportation.  We need to complete our fundraising by April 24th.

Please consider making a donation to help us get to States!

Front of the Class will be matching 25% of all donations made to our fundraiser!



  • April 17 - 2 PM - The Rome City School District has arranged to cover our transportation so our remaining estimated costs are $3,200.  As of this update, we have raised $1,125 including matching funds.
  • April 21 - 11AM - We have received new donations in the amount of $300.  With the Front of the Class match, we're at $1,500.  $1,700 to go.
