About The Georgia Farm Bureau (GFB) Foundation For Agriculture
The GFB Foundation for Agriculture is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to advancing Georgia agriculture and creating healthy communities. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of farmers, educators and agricultural leaders from across the state.
Resources contributed to the Foundation are redistributed for the purposes of telling the story of agriculture through Ag in the Classroom, consumer awareness projects and adult learning opportunities. A key component of the Foundation is supporting the youth of Georgia through scholarships and financial assistance. Contributions are tax deductible as outlined under IRS 170(b)(A)(VI). The Foundation works with Georgia Farm Bureau and other agricultural and educational organizations throughout Georgia to create healthier communities and raise consumer awareness on agricultural issues.
Pillars of the Foundation include providing scholarships for high school and college students, supporting Georgia 4-H and Georgia FFA, supporting elementary and middle school children in ag literacy projects through our Ag In The Classroom program, educational outreach geared towards consumers and creating growth opportunities for future leaders in communities across Georgia.
