Pay It Forward

Remember the Helping Hands that Got You Where You Are Today?

Keep that generosity going for others with a Gift to the IFEA Foundation.

The IFEA Foundation depends upon the generous support of those who are active in the industry to play a larger role – beyond their own events and markets – to ensure both the present and the future success of our profession, just as those who have come before helped to pave our own pathways. This support can come in many ways:
  • Cash donations
  • Gift bequeaths
  • In-kind support of critical services and products
  • Item/Package donations to our annual IFEA Foundation Auction event
  • Bidding on the unique and valuable items and packages at the IFEA Foundation Auction event
  • Donating your time and expertise to support IFEA’s many professional programs
  • And more!
We invite you to get involved in the IFEA Foundation’s important efforts to support the continued growth and professionalism of this unique industry.

What We Do

The IFEA Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization, managed by an elected and non-compensated board of directors. It was formed in 1993 with a mission of ensuring that the IFEA has the resources to fulfill its own educational mission.

Since its inception, the IFEA Foundation has been a primary partner of the IFEA’s, working together to continue raising the level of professionalism in our industry, along with the level of recognition and awareness for the industry and those who work in it, by the media and the general public. Through the provision of:
  • Legacy Scholarships
  • Certified Festival & Event Executive (CFEE and CFEA) Program
  • Funding of top quality speakers
  • Educational publications
  • Technology and electronic training services
  • Translation services and more
the IFEA Foundation is helping the IFEA -- “The Premier Association Supporting and Enabling Festival and Events Professionals Worldwide” -- to achieve their vision of a globally united industry that touches lives in a positive way through celebration.
