Who We Are
  • Established in 1897, Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association is a nonprofit trade organization representing the sports flooring industry.
  • MFMA's mission is to be the worldwide authoritative source of information about maple sports flooring and related sports flooring systems while supporting safe, environmentally sound forestry management. MFMA accomplishes this mission by developing quality, performance, and installation best practices, education, and promoting the use of quality sports flooring products.
  • Architects, specifiers, facility managers, school officials, and maintenance personnel regularly consult the MFMA with questions about the specification, use, and care of MFMA sports flooring.

Foreword

This website is dedicated to the MFMA 2022 Art Contest, "Art For Trees," and showcases 79 (out of all 82) beautiful artworks submitted by children from 17 US states. We matched our "anniversary-themed" amount of $12.5 for each artwork and donated $2,050 to eight tree-planting nonprofits in accordance with the kids' choices. In some cases, depending on a nonprofit's work area, one child's artwork covers the planting of 166 trees!

Thank you to all children who took part in this green initiative and their parents and teachers who encouraged them! Each artwork is very dear to us and holds a special place in our hearts and this Gallery!
