FARM CREDIT FOUNDATION FOR AGRICULTURAL ADVANCEMENT ANNOUNCES 2022 COMMUNITY EDUCATION PROGRAM
The Farm Credit Foundation for Agricultural Advancement is now accepting applications for Phase I of its Community Education Program, providing up to $10,000 to local non-profit organizations that benefit agriculture education. The program will offer funding for projects that make a positive impact within MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s footprint and Washington D.C.
“Agriculture education plays a vital role in the future of our industry,” says Charles Wright IV, Chairman of the Foundation. “This program will assist the many local organizations that offer ag-related activities, programs, and trainings to our community. The Foundation encourages those eligible to apply for funding to continue creating educational opportunities.”
Funding options include up to $2,000 and up to $10,000, depending on the size and scope of the project. Applications will be accepted online in two phases:
- Phase I: Now – June 30, 2022
- Phase II: July 1, 2022 – October 20, 2022
Qualified programs must serve communities within MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s 44 county footprint and Washington D.C. and be consistent with the values and mission of the Foundation. Requests that meet the selection criteria are considered by the Foundation Board. Only 501(c)(3) organizations or those otherwise exempt from federal income tax will be considered.
