Named Funds

Establishing a Named Fund is a great way to show your support of the floral industry and leave a legacy of your family or business to the industry for years to come.

Donate to a Named Fund

Through the American Floral Endowment, industry members are able to establish a Named Fund. AFE is grateful to all those who have created funds through the Endowment. Contributions to any Named Fund can be made by clicking the donate button below and entering the fund in the “description” box.

Both types of Named Funds help AFE support research, scholarships and educational efforts to further promote the industry. For information about establishing a Named Fund,
please contact AFE at (703) 838-5211 or afe@endowment.org

What’s The Difference?

Undesignated Named Funds

A gift of $25,000 or more can establish an Undesignated Named Fund, a very flexible gift that allows the income to be used where it is needed most at any given time. Donors enter into an agreement that memorializes the gift and acknowledges that this is an undesignated fund. Sometimes wonderful opportunities present themselves unexpectedly and undesignated funds enable AFE to be agile and respond quickly.

Designated Named Funds

A donation of $50,000 or more can establish a Designated Named Fund for scholarships, research, or grants. The fund operates separately from AFE’s main corpus but is invested alongside it. Initial gift amount and subsequent contributions are tracked individually. Investment gains, losses, and expenses are shared proportionally. Donors receive individual reports on fund balance, distributions, and usage. A separate gift agreement outlines the purpose, allocation, donor history, and administration of the fund.

Both types of Named Funds help AFE support research, scholarships and educational efforts to further promote the industry.
