About the Awards

Rehabilitating Veterans Park in Orlando

The Franchising Gives Back Awards celebrate the stories of how franchisors, franchisees and suppliers have established themselves as true leaders through their commitment to giving back to their communities. The Awards salute the best, most innovative community leaders and charitable programs and the collective impact of these efforts across the U.S. and around the world.

Who are the judges?

Finalists will be selected in each category using a criteria and point system. Finalists will then be recommended to a panel of judges representing the IFA and IFA Foundation leadership.
