The School Nutrition Foundation was established in 1964 to provide financial support for education and professional development, as well as to support research and offer scholarships for SNA members. 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.

2018 Annual Fund Campaign

The goal for the 2018 Annual Fund is $75,000 and, more importantly, the Foundation wants to increase the number of SNA members who support the Annual Fund.

2018 State Incentive: Get Dollars for Scholarships

When states meet percentage participation goals in 2018, the Foundation will make a portion of the funds donated by its members available to the state for scholarships for state conferences and other professional development.

Help Your State Meet Its Goal

To help your state, go to your state’s fundraising page and make a contribution to the 2018 Annual Fund.

State Ambassadors

In the past, SNF had representatives in each state. To renew that program and to spread the word about the Foundation and its programs, the SNF State Ambassador program was launched in 2016. As of April 20, 2018, (47) Forty-seven states have SNF Ambassadors. The ambassadors helped at ANC, and made presentations at state conferences and meetings. The impact is a positive one! To view the representative for your state, view the SNF 2017 State Ambassadors list.

If you are a SNF State Ambassador, visit our State Support Center for various tools and resources to assist you in promoting the Annual Fund and the Foundation in your state.

2018 Corporate Support

Those businesses that contribute $500 or more to the 2018 Annual Fund will be “Friends of the Foundation” and will receive recognition with ribbons on name badges at the Annual National Conference (ANC), a sign that can be used at ANC and other exhibits throughout the year, and with recognition on SNF's Report on Giving. To make a gift, you can make a contribution online or can download the special contribution form for corporate support.
