The SHFM Foundation [501(c)(3)] is truly proud to be celebrating 11 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 benefitted from our programs and support, in the SHFM Foundation’s 2017 Annual Report, included here.
Of course, none of this would be possible without an on-going commitment from all of you, the SHFM membership, whose beliefs, focus, and generosity have helped to raise and donate $640,000 over this 11-year period. The Foundation Board of Directors cannot thank you enough for your constancy to purpose, which, according to Benjamin Disraeli, is the secret to success!
The success of the Foundation’s efforts are also the direct result of the passion and leadership with which its Board of Directors 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 2017 Annual Report. I think you will be very proud of what we, all, have accomplished together.
