About the Education Foundation
The AFA Education Foundation (AFAEF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, brings educational opportunities into reach for individuals and their family members in the fence industry by providing scholarships to highly deserving candidates. Scholarships are funded through donations (individuals and companies, chapter donations, etc.) and proceeds from AFA Education Foundation fundraisers
(golf tournaments, drawings, etc.).
Raising the Bar to $250k
Reaching a $250k benchmark increases the number of students and families the AFA Education Foundation can assist in the fence industry. With education costs continuing to rise, the AFAEF wants to ease the financial burden for current and future students. Your tax deductible donation will help AFAEF achieve its goals and make a difference in the life of a student in the industry.
Scholarships & Donations
Scholarship applications are available each year. Scholarships are awarded each year at FENCETECH. Award recipients are chosen based on need and qualifications. 5 scholarships are available at $5,000.00 each.
