Join the charge to make FM a career of choice! Ignite the way for future FM super stars by underwriting Foundation activities at World Workplace 2018 in Charlotte, NC in October

With more than half of today's facility managers expected to retire in the next 5-10 years, we must introduce Facility Management as a career of choice to upcoming professionals and incumbent workers.  The IFMA Foundation's Global Workforce Initiative (GWI) seeks to fill the growing FM workforce talent gap and also increase the number of facility management accredited degree programs.

To be ready, we need to develop resources and training materials for local volunteer efforts; identify and develop new degree programs; and support existing ones.  ​Strengthen the recruiting efforts to reach students, teachers, guidance counselors, and parents about the value of FM careers.  These are some of the most important things needed to ensure the future of Facility Management.

Now is the time to consider supporting the work of the Foundation ​at World Workplace.  If you have already donated this year – we thank you, and ask you to please consider an additional gift.  The links below have detailed information.
