The Foundation of NACE has something for everyone



The Foundation of NACE is giving you something to believe in.
At our core, the Foundation of NACE believes in becoming the most prominent proponent of overall advancement of the catering and event profession, students and the community at large. That's why, beginning in 2011, "I believe" will be a phrase to be remembered and revered.
This year, we will be allocating our time and funds to developing three concepts for our industry. 
1. Educating Today - The Foundation of NACE will develop and implement robust industry education with schools and universities in order to expand content and drive institutional collaboration to strengthen the knowledge base of catering and events professionals.
2. Discovering Tomorrow - The Foundation of NACE will provide insight and intelligence regarding the catering and events industry to individuals and organizations, serving as a viable resource for professionals looking to build a formidable enterprise.
3. Community Always - The Foundation of NACE will have the ability to inspire greatness in students and the people in our communities by providing scholarships and opportunities for involvement in charitable activities that will build a strong foundation for our future.
Now, the Foundation of NACE offers you several ways in which you can "believe" in your commitment to our organization.
I "believe" I'd like to give back now!
