“These seven organizations are making a big impact on the future of agriculture,” says Laura Heilinger, Chairperson of the Farm Credit Foundation for Agricultural Advancement. “We are happy to help fund their ag education efforts and programs across our five state footprint to reach our local communities.”

 

Organizations that support agriculture education within Horizon Farm Credit’s territory and Washington D.C. are encouraged to apply for funding in one of two different options: up to $2,000 and up to $10,000, depending on the size and scope of the request. The Foundation’s Board of Directors reviewed the applications and chose the selected organizations to receive funding based on their alignment with the values and mission of the Foundation.

 

Phase 2 of the Community Education Program is open now through October 20, 2022. The Foundation also offers a student scholarship program each year, distributing over $100,000 to those pursuing a career in agriculture. The 2023 program will open in September.
