60 Days to Raise $100,000 – Peer-to-Peer Campaign

60 Days to Raise $100,000 – Peer-to-Peer Campaign

Thank you for Joining Our 60 Days Campaign!

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

For the second year in a row, AFE’s annual fundraising event was held fully 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 was 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 both our initial goal of $60,000 within the first 30 days and our new goal of $100,000. Breaking records for AFE’s annual fundraising event – during our 60th Anniversary Year!

Sponsors of this campaign have impacted the industry by funding research, scholarships, internships, and grants allowing AFE to expand its programs. 

For 60 years, AFE has been supporting the industry; thank you for helping us continue for another 60!
