Support another 60 years of programs, research, and resources!

For the second year in a row, AFE’s annual fundraising event will be held virtually in order to assure the safety and health of our floral community. As a Board and staff, our shared goal for this virtual non-event is to raise $100,000 in 60 days! (Monday, June 14th to Friday, August 13th)

Thanks to the quick work of our ambassadors and the generosity of our floral industry community, we have surpassed our initial goal of $60,000 within the first 30 days. With the support of our team of volunteer fundraisers, we set the new goal at $100,000, which will break records for AFE’s annual fundraising event – during our 60th Anniversary Year! Click here to see the NEW goal announcement! Sponsors of this campaign will impact the industry by funding research, scholarships, internships, and grants allowing AFE to expand its programs. 

For 60 years, AFE has been supporting the industry; help us continue for another 60! Thank you to our 60th Anniversary sponsors!
