Research Foundation Drive Donors

Thank you for funding future flower research!

Since 2003, the ASCFG Research Foundation has awarded more than fifty grants to qualified and innovative researchers. With these donations, we hope to grow our Grants program and to provide more opportunities to scholars who engage in floriculture research. The need for relevant research on the wide variety of cut flowers, methods of production and marketing, and agricultural economics is greater than ever.

ASCFG members generously donated $13,982 during our 2023 Fund Future Flower Research Donation Drive, and by “Rounding up for Research” when they renewed their memberships this year. We appreciate your initiative and support.

In addition to the wonderful generosity shown by our members during the Fund Future Flower Research Donation Drive, the ASCFG Research Foundation hosted two webinars to showcase our suppliers. Funds raised through these webinars totaled $6,450. We couldn’t have done this without the support of our members and our vendors. Thank you so very much!
