The Alabama Grocers Education Foundation (AGEF) is dedicated to enriching education and career development in the grocery industry.

Our Foundation’s mission is:

Advancing education

Growing career development

Empowering the leaders of tomorrow

Financial assistance

for AGA member employees and their dependents

Our mission is met through our Scholarship Program, which recognizes and aids deserving students who are related to Alabama’s food industry by virtue of their parent’s employment or their own part-time employment at AGA member companies; our Tuition Reimbursement Program helps AGA members who desire to advance their career through continued education; and through education seminars. The AGEF is a 501(c)(3) organization, which holds three annual fundraising events to support our Foundation: our Spring Golf Outing, Silent Auction held at our Annual Show, and our Fall Clay Shoot. Since our formation in 1992, we have awarded over $1.4 million in scholarships!
