About - TAFEF

Tucson Advertising Federation Educational Foundation (TAFEF) is the 501(c)3 component of AAF Tucson dedicated to facilitating education of the next generation of media professionals through an endowment fund established as a result of our Media Partnership Program.  You can help make a direct impact on the future by supporting TAFEF with a tax-deductible contribution. Contact us for more information.

Our History

TAFEF was born from a focus on the future and in making sure our industry’s next generation has access to internship opportunities they need to be successful. AAF Tucson endowed an educational enrichment fund for AAF Student Chapters in the following local schools:

  • The Art Institute of Tucson
  • Pima Community College
  • Southwest University of Visual Arts
  • University of Arizona

Since 2001, we have awarded tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships to deserving AAF Student Chapter members.
