SITE Foundation’s 2024 year-at-a-glance

SITE Foundation is the charitable arm of SITE. Its US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit status means SITE Foundation can legally receive tax-deductible donations. Donations, and other funds raised, are then re-invested in our industry through grants and scholarships disbursed by the Foundation each year.

In 2024, SITE Foundation plans to more than double the amount of funding granted to SITE members and friends. Here is an overview of what the Foundation and its Board of Trustees are planning for the year ahead.
