What is the IFMA Foundation?

The IFMA Foundation was established in 1990 as a separate non-profit entity from the IFMA organization. Financial support does not come from membership dues but from the contributions of the IFMA members, chapters, councils, corporate sponsors and private contributors. The mission of the Foundation is three fold: to support education, research and scholarships for the benefit of the Facility Management Community. It is this education and research that the Foundation believes will improve the Facility Management profession.

We are fortunate in the Greater Triangle Chapter to have two of our members involved in the Foundation. Roger Peterson, ARAMARK Facilities Services serves as the Foundation First Vice Chair and Michael Schley, FM Systems, Inc. serves as Trustee. I invite you to talk with them to learn more about the Foundation or visit
