Grow by Giving

The DeKalb County Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture announces its campaign, “Grow By Giving” to raise awareness and build understanding for the endless possibilities of educating others about agriculture.

The DeKalb County Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is positioned to GROW – GROW Knowledge, GROW Understanding and GROW Awareness of Agriculture – by generating funds for worthwhile agricultural initiatives. Tax deductible donations will fund programs important to agriculture and the agricultural industry.

This outreach is more important than ever because the average American is now at least three generations removed from the farm. The Foundation believes there is great value in connecting consumers to their source of food, fiber and fuel in our communities.

The DeKalb County Farm Bureau Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3)to accept tax deductible donations to fund initiatives important to agriculture. The Foundation will accept charitable contributions of money, real estate, farmland and securities from any person. Various funding opportunities are available such as named endowments, in memory of a family member or loved one.

Please consider donating to the Foundation through these funds: Cultivating Paths, The Giving Field, Growing Acres, Legacy Gift or a Named Endowment. Through your dedication to agriculture and your support of the Foundation we can ultimately ensure we reach more people of all ages with accurate, positive information about farm and food production.
