AH&LEF is the not-for-profit affiliate of AH&LA and is funded solely by charitable donations from progressive hospitality leaders and companies within the industry. In 2013, AH&LEF disbursed nearly $1 million to prepare promising college students for a career in hospitality, to attract and retain talented industry professionals, and to fund valuable research for the industry. Since the Foundation’s inception, more than $18.5 million has been distributed through its scholarship, education, outreach, and research programs.
The Annual Giving Campaign is the Foundation’s yearly key fundraiser that supports its core missions, including providing scholarships to hospitality management students, funding important research in areas such as room tax and ADA requirements, promoting hospitality as a career of choice, and workforce development initiatives.
