Catastrophic Fund

A Brief History


You may recall a time when Texas State Florists’ Association worked in concert with the AIFD Foundation to support victims of Hurricane Harvey. Following, there were similar efforts where we assisted florists in Florida. Other catastrophic situations soon followed, such as the fires in California, where there was no specific fund in place to help. This led the AIFD Foundation Board of Trustees to establish the AIFD Foundation Catastrophic Fund to assist with property damage resulting from a natural disaster.

Natural Disaster Assistance Grant Application


The Natural Disaster Assistance Grant assists those, employed in the floral industry, with expenses related to property damage resulting from a natural disaster. This Grant is not designed to compensate for business or inventory loss.
The application is available here.
