2022 Fundraising Campaign

Held Virtually Between Monday, May 16th – Thursday, June 30th

In an effort to continue to increase annual support for important research, education, and other floriculture programs, AFE is once again conducting a virtual fundraising campaign.

Look ahead with us, as AFE shares innovative research on new advances, scholarships and internships for the next generation of leaders, grants to enable the continued education of all industry members, and more.

See our full list of current sponsors here!

Our new logo, established and approved as a part of our new Strategic Plan for 2022-2025, touts the overall goal/tagline of Funding the Future of Floriculture, which we have chosen as our theme for this year’s campaign as we envision and provide for a future full of flowers.

Your donation to AFE helps increase funding to support:

  • Research to produce healthier, longer-lasting flowers and plants
  • Scholarships and Internships to recruit tomorrow’s leaders and provide hands-on training for the next generation
  • Educational Grants to provide learning opportunities and knowledge to all industry members
  • Industry resources to recruit and retain top talent, including a floral career center, resources to help train your employees, and more.

Our 2022 Fundraising Campaign features many Sponsorship Opportunities. We hope you will become a Sponsor to support our important work. Our virtual campaign runs only through June 30th, but recognition continues throughout the year. Please sign up TODAY!

Our dedicated Board of Trustees and Staff will be contacting floral industry organizations and individuals to support our annual fundraising campaign.

Remember, the campaign only runs through June 30th, so please sign up early! Of course, donations to AFE can be made at any time and are tax-deductible.

And…Be sure to assign your donation to one of our Trustees or Staff. They are divided into Teams this year and are a competitive bunch!
