The SHFM Foundation [501(c)(3)] is truly proud to be celebrating 13 years of helping students prepare for careers, supporting colleges’ and universities' high-quality educational curricula, and delivering a pipeline of qualified job candidates for the corporate foodservice and workplace hospitality industry. You can learn about these good works and more from the students and faculty members who have benefited from our programs and support, in the SHFM Foundation’s 2019 Annual Report.
Of course, none of this would be possible without an ongoing commitment from all of you, the SHFM membership, whose beliefs, focus and generosity have helped to raise and donate $760,000 over this 13-year period. The Foundation Board of Directors cannot thank you enough for your commitment to our mission.
The success of the Foundation’s efforts is also the direct result of the passion and leadership with which its Board of Directors and Volunteers serve. Rest assured, we will continue to elevate and serve our mission of extending SHFM’s impact from the industry into the community through education and student and professional support, and in so doing, improve the lives of the next generation of hospitality leaders and their opportunities for success.
I encourage you to take a few moments to review the work of the Foundation in the 2019 Annual Report by using the link below. Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention our 2019 Annual Report is dedicated to our friend and long-time board member Bill Day who we lost a few weeks ago. I think you will be very proud of what we all have accomplished together.
