SNF Receives Record-breaking Donations at ANC 2016


Having just wrapped up the Association’s 70th Annual National Conference (ANC) in San Antonio, TX, we are pleased to share that the School Nutrition Foundation’s (SNF) fundraising efforts at ANC brought in a record-breaking $8,182.00! Members donated to SNF’s Annual Fund in person at the booth, electronically via the ANC on the Go mobile app and they even contributed their spare change in containers placed in SNA’s Shop and Bookstore. SNF received 204 individual gifts, which represents an increase of 124% from 2015.

When asked what made this year so much more successful, Janet Hedrick, SNF’s Director of Development stated, “It really had a lot to do with the new State Ambassadors and other volunteers. In fact, there were 60 volunteers from 33 states. They worked very hard to inspire SNA members to donate to the Foundation. These financial resources will be used to benefit members by providing education, professional development, scholarships and research in school nutrition.”

Although ANC is over, there is still plenty of time to support SNF’s Annual Fund. Visit to learn more about how you can make an investment in the future of school nutrition. Additionally, the Foundation’s State Ambassadors will continue to promote member giving at the state level at conferences and events throughout the remainder of 2016. As added incentive, SNF will donate 20% of the total raised by State Associations to use for scholarships if they have a minimum participation of 3% or higher with a corresponding total amount of money raised, or match 25% of the total at 5% participation and a higher dollar goal.

As fall approaches, save the date: #GivingTuesday is coming! Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Tuesday, November 29, 2016 is a global day to give back and the perfect occasion to support school nutrition with a donation to the Foundation.
