Annual Fund

The School Nutrition Foundation was established in 1964 to provide financial support to the provide education and professional development, support research, and offer scholarship to benefit the members of the School Nutrition Association. For more than 50 years, the Foundation has been educating and empowering the men and women who provide healthy nourishment to school children.

Your support of the Foundation is an investment in the school nutrition profession. Contributions are used to assist professionals in school nutrition by providing the skills, the knowledge, and the insight needed to meet the challenge involved in providing nutrition and in developing healthy habits so that students are well-nourished and are prepared for success in school.

Please join with your friends and colleagues in supporting the Annual Fund with a tax-deductible contribution before December 31.

2015 Annual Fund Campaign

The goal for the Annual Fund for 2015 is $35,000. More importantly, the Foundation wants to increase the number of SNA members who support the Annual Fund.

State Competition

In 2015, State Associations will compete with the other State Associations in its division for the highest percentage participation award. (To qualify, the contribution must be $10 or more and must come from a non-industry SNA member.) The number of contributors is more important than the amount of the gifts. In each SNA membership division (1-500; 501–1,000; and 1,001+), those who contributed to the Annual Fund from the respective State Association with the highest percentage participation will be entered into a drawing for two reserved seats for the entertainment event at the 2016 Annual National Conference (ANC).

Add your support and help your State Association achieve the highest percentage participation in giving to the Annual Fund. Click on the Donate Now button in the top right of this page, or click here to make your tax-deductible donation today.
