Two Ohio-based Collegiate Farm Bureau chapters were recently announced as recipients of mini-grants from the American Farm Bureau Federation.
Collegiate Farm Bureau organizations at The Ohio State University and Wilmington College will receive $500 each to aid in chapter recruitment, leadership development, community service outreach, officer development, purchase of educational materials and registration costs for conferences.
“Both of these chapters have grown in recent years and have seen the impact of their work expand throughout their communities because of their efforts,” said Kelsey Turner, program specialist in leadership development with Ohio Farm Bureau. “These mini-grants will allow them to amplify their current programs and create new opportunities to demonstrate what their purpose is all about.”
Since the development of the program in fall of 2017, American Farm Bureau has awarded more than 50 mini-grants through the Collegiate Farm Bureau Mini-Grant Program.
Ohio Farm Bureau’s mission is working together for Ohio farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen our communities. Learn more at ohiofarmbureau.org.
