Support Floral Industry Programs Through AFE

Alexandria, Virginia – The American Floral Endowment (AFE) is asking the floral community to consider a year-end gift to the industry this holiday season. By making a donation to AFE, you are supporting the continued success of our industry through programs and resources aimed at solving challenges and promoting opportunities in floriculture. 

What Does Your Contribution Support?

For 60 years, and only through industry support, AFE has provided vital research, programs, and resources to advance the floral industry. Much of the way flowers are grown and processed today are direct results of AFE-funded research. Cold chain management, care and handling, shipping practices, and pest & disease protocols are key to the success of our industry. Industry contributions support:

  • Research to produce healthier, longer-lasting flowers and plants to boost profits for everyone. See AFE’s 60 years of research achievements here.

  • Educational grants to provide learning opportunities and knowledge to all industry members.
  • AFE Career Center to connect job seekers and employers — providing career development tools and recruitment resources.
