Foundation Events

When you participate in a Foundation virtual event this year during FNCE®, you are helping the Foundation make a difference in the lives of hundreds of Academy members each year through our programs.

Foundation events will include:

  • Virtual Foundation Booth hours to visit with staff, ask questions and learn more about your Foundation

  • Foundation Video Premieres featuring current programs and how they are making an impact throughout our profession
  • Register for the Foundation Virtual Silent Auction and Check Out All Our Great Items!

    The Foundation Silent Auction has always been one of the most popular live events at FNCE® each year, with a wide variety of items that helps raise thousands of dollars for the Foundation’s Annual Fund. This year, by going virtual, all Academy members can participate with 24-hour mobile bidding. The Auction will run from October 15 to the 20th but you can register today and check out all the great items, including jewelry, handbags and home goods!

  • Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Fundraiser – Mary Made Jewelry

    Here is a great way to support the Foundation while getting gifts for yourself and others. Go online during FNCE® to Mary Made Jewelry and choose from an array of handcrafted earrings, bracelets and necklaces, many with food themes. Use the code ANDF20 and pay 20% less than the usual price and free shipping.

    One hundred percent of the sale price will then be donated to the Foundation by Mary Abbott Hess, a former ADA President who has made each one-of-a-kind piece on the website. This website was created to support scholarships for a Boys & Girls Club in Chicago, where Mary volunteers. For one week only, October 14-22, All sales will benefit our Foundation. So, give yourself a treat and do your holiday shopping early.
