Donating to the Education Foundation
Opportunities to Support Young People to Become Future Leaders in the Hospitality Industry
Opportunities to Assist Include:
Sponsor a Scholarship: For $500 or more you can sponsor a scholarship, which allows you to honor an important hospitality person who has passed away by naming the scholarship after them, presenting the scholarship to the student and gaining notoriety for having been a sponsor.
Golf: Don’t want to sponsor a scholarship? Then attend the Tees & Textbooks event and see what it is all about. The scholarship dinner is one evening and the golf tourney is the following day. Mulligan proceeds are given directly to the Education Foundation.
Annual Meeting: Attend the Annual Meeting and participate in our Silent Auction by donating an auction item or by bidding on some great items!
Dues: Contributions to the Foundation on your Dues Renewal form.
Planned Giving Levels of Participation:
