Young people today are looking for new paths to their professional careers and competition for talent is ever-increasing. Your generous donation to the Industry Talent Fund will allow Center for Growing Talent to continue to meet students where they are and educate them about all the career opportunities our industry has to offer.

An investment in talent is an investment in the future of our companies and our industry. Your corporate contribution to the Industry Talent Fund provides necessary funds to bring the right talent to companies like yours.

Fund a Student

Center for Growing Talent's Career Pathways Program offers college students a glimpse inside the dynamic, global fresh produce and floral industries and the career opportunities, potential and rewards within them. This program is made possible due to industry contributions and sponsorships.

The competition for talent is fierce, and we need to continue attracting students to support the health and growth of our industry. A $2,500 contribution will ensure a student’s certified training and readiness for the industry.

These students are our future – and your contribution goes directly to furthering the student’s education and industry readiness through the Career Pathways Program. Fund a student today!
