Contributions Make Things Happen!
The American Floral Endowment (AFE) is an independent, nonprofit organization that funds research and scholarships in floriculture and environmental horticulture for the benefit of retailers, growers, wholesalers, importers, and allied trade organizations.
AFE has sponsored much of the modern research that benefits the industry, from funding studies on pest and disease control to marketing and media research, none of which would be possible without donors like you.
For more than 60 years, AFE has awarded more than $18 million to floral industry research, educational grants, scholarships, and internships. AFE awards are acclaimed by universities and help with tenure decisions for young researchers.
AFE is comprised of committees that evaluate research and scholarship proposals. Having committees in place makes it easier for donors to ensure their funds are handled properly without worrying about the mechanics behind donating. Nevertheless, AFE appreciates when donors want to give their input, which is always considered valuable.
