Thanks to all of our donors from the past year for your generous contributions.

Your support is greatly appreciated and allows us to continue providing programs and other important benefits to the industry.

AFE is the floral industry’s endowment — a place where all industry members can invest to help solve critical challenges.

Tackling industry challenges is something that can’t be done overnight, or by one individual or company; it takes a collaborative effort and the support of many.

You play an important role in helping us advance the industry through our research, scholarships and educational programs. And we want to thank you!
