IFEA Foundation Auction

The IFEA Foundation Celebration, Ultimate Experience Getaway and Online Auction are making a triumphant return in 2021, and your support is more important than ever to help us keep our association and industry moving forward!

This important fundraising event is a crucial source of support for the IFEA Foundation. Funds raised will help support the IFEA as we continue to support the Festivals & Events Industry through the sharing of important resources, presenting valuable education, providing critical information updates, helping establish and strengthen industry connections, and so much more!

Funds raised also allow us to confidently provide scholarships to our Annual Convention to many new and aspiring professionals who will become the next generation of industry leadership and to those deserving organizations working to build a solid and successful foundation for their festivals, events and communities.

Help the IFEA and the IFEA Foundation continue to support our members and the Festivals and Events Industry for many years to come, make a donation today!
