AboutIFA’s Foundation

For 26 years, VetFran has connected veterans with ownership and employment opportunities in franchising, recognizing that our nation’s vets have invaluable skills and experience to contribute, and that it’s our duty to help them transition from protecting our nation to successful careers. Read more about VetFran here.



Franchising creates ownership and employment in virtually every community around the nation, and our mission is to enhance and expand those opportunities in traditionally underserved communities. The promise of prosperity, local hiring and fostering a culture of community development makes franchising a force for good, and diversity makes our companies stronger. Read more about our diversity programs here.

Providing resources and mentorship opportunities for the next generation of entrepreneurs to grow businesses in the franchising community, the NextGen program seeks to encourage millennial innovation in small business. Learn more about the program here.
