For the Love of Chocolate Foundation

About Us 

For the Love of Chocolate Foundation awards culinary arts training scholarships to non-profit organizations promoting commitment to pastry and baking arts education. The awards are for individuals looking to change careers, as well as individuals who have shown potential in the culinary field but have no formal pastry and baking education.



The goal of the scholarships is to encourage and assist aspiring students, career changers, and culinary career professionals to advance their knowledge of the pastry arts. The Foundation is specifically geared toward individuals and culinary programs who are in need of financial assistance. The Foundation partners with the Hospitality, Confectionery, Culinary and Baking Industries to build career and business connections for culinary student volunteers by holding showcase events throughout the year.



Through the generosity of the foundation’s sponsors, alumni, industry vendors and associates, scholarships to offset student tuition are awarded annually to non-profit culinary training organizations to offset student tuition.

As of 2018, the Foundation directly supports the following programs with monetary awards toward scholarships or career building opportunities:

  •  After School Matters
