Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation

The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation is currently considering applications from organizations addressing a variety of program areas within agriculture for its Action and Awareness grant program.

“We all share the vision of a strong farm and food community for all Ohioans,” said Mike Townsley, chairman of the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation board. “These grants provide a great opportunity for outside organizations and county Farm Bureaus to collaborate and create new projects that will help inspire innovation and cultivate investment in Ohio’s farm and food community.”

 The Foundation funds programs that create a positive, measurable impact in four core areas of giving through the Action and Awareness grant program:

  • EducationProviding grants for professional development programs allowing individuals to advance their knowledge of agriculture, share ideas and improve people’s lives.
  • EnvironmentFunding sensible solutions that contribute to a healthier, cleaner and more sustainable Ohio by focusing on increased care for land and water.
  • Economic DevelopmentCapturing opportunities that build prosperity, create jobs and enhance the quality of life for Ohioans by funding projects that spur economic growth in local communities.
  • Human-Animal Bond Promoting the proper care of animals and the many ways they bring quality to human life.

Grant amounts can be awarded up to $3,000 and are provided for a one-year period.

The deadline to apply for grants during the spring grant cycle is April 1. For funding eligibility requirements and to apply, visit ofbf.org/foundation/aagrants.

Farm Bureau is an incredible organization that has given me countless professional development opportunities in addition to advocating for all sizes and types of farmers.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
