The primary goal of the Foundation is to support education and
leadership training organizations dedicated to serving the interests of
farmers and rural communities in the Northeast. The Foundation
anticipates making about 25–30 grants each year generally ranging from
$1,000 to $10,000 per grant
Contributions will be focused geographically primarily in the
northeastern United States. Programs or projects are expected to be
primarily statewide or larger activities.
The Foundation will support organizations whose activities either
promote agricultural leadership development, help foster a better
understanding of agriculture and/or our food production system, or
improve the quality of life for farmers.
Of particular interest to the Foundation are those organizations that:
1) provide agricultural leadership training; 2) provide education about
agriculture; 3) educate citizens, especially youth, about how food is
produced and processed; or 4) promote farm safety awareness, especially
those which educate and train farmers and their families.
