About the Partnership:
Ecolab, Inc. has been partnered with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) for over a decade. The company has given nearly $3 million to the NRAEF, $100,000 of which was designated as scholarships. One of the company’s sources of giving is through Ecolab Inc.’s Annual Ecolab Chairman’s Reception (now in its 12th year), held in conjunction with the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show in Chicago. Ecolab, Inc. typically raises around $130,000 for the NRAEF, by holding a silent auction during the event.
