Case for Support

HARF is arguably the most transformation kind of philanthropy.

Supporting HARF is an investment in job skills, financial independence, self-sufficiency, and the dignity and sense of accomplishment that instills.

We rely annual support from industry leaders to maintain this life-changing charitable effort. With your contribution, you are transforming the lives of the young people here in school today and those that follow.

Annually, HARF celebrates individuals who commit their educational careers to hospitality and excel in these studies. We honor their diligence and work ethic. We promise our support and opportunities that lead to a bright future.

Please join us in that promise.

The Hotel and Restaurant Foundation has provided me with an opportunity to dig deeper in to the hospitality industry. Thank you so much for giving me a chance to show I can be a future leader. I am beyond honored to accept this award.

After receiving my scholarship, I was able to focus on my learning rather than stress about my tuition fees. The generous gift  has made my school year easier financially. I cannot thank you enough.

I am currently taking a full course load and working so that I can pay for tuition and provide for myself. The HARF scholarship will greatly help me with my financial burden. Thank you so much!
