Today’s the day! It’s #GivingTuesday, a national day of philanthropy, and the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation is celebrating!

The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation has always been committed to inspiring innovation and cultivating investment in Ohio’s farm and food community. 

Giving Tuesday

When you give:
  • You provide opportunities for hundreds of students attending colleges and universities, as well as to those who are directly entering the workforce whose career paths will enhance the agricultural industry. This year, the foundation and county Farm Bureaus collectively awarded over $250,000 in scholarships to 265 students statewide.
  • You enable the foundation to award grants to county Farm Bureaus and partner organizations that share our goal of helping young people discover their purpose and passion in agricultural careers.
  • You make it possible for Ohio Farm Bureau to continually offer our signature ag literacy and workforce development programs, such as ExploreAg. This year, more than 100 students gained exposure to careers in agriculture that they may have never had access to without this experience. 

If you already made your gift this fiscal year, we thank you for your generosity. If not, join us! With your help, we can continue to sow seeds of opportunity and harvest the fruits of success.

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
