WAEF Celebrates 25 Years!


25 years ago members of the tree fruit industry gathered to form an organization to coordinate, develop and promote charitable works on behalf of the industry. Early impacts to kids and families were through nutrition education, grants supporting education for farmworker families and some limited scholarships.

 Today you now award over $1 million annually in scholarships to amazing college-bound men and women raised in industry families! Thank you for establishing and sustaining an organization creating such life-changing results!

 The 25th anniversary will be celebrated throughout the year through existing events, e-newsletter communications and special gatherings. Sometimes the remembrance may look like a birthday party with cake and candles and other times a meaningful celebration of the impact you're creating through foundation good works. We will be honoring current and former members of the board of directors, recognizing donors for their last 25 years of giving, communicating the foundation's lifetime of results and including all who have made this possible.

Please celebrate with this us this year!
