FOUNDATION GRANT PROGRAM
The GFB Foundation for Agriculture is dedicated to enhancing agricultural literacy across Georgia. The Foundation Grant program is a funding opportunity for county Farm Bureaus in Georgia to help raise consumer awareness, enhance leadership growth and participate in ag literacy projects. There will be two grant application cycles each year, and two categories of grants awarded during each cycle.
The two grant application cycles each year are:
Winter / Spring - Applications due December 15
Summer / Fall - Applications due June 30
COUNTY FARM BUREAU GRANTS
Up to 10 grants will be awarded to county Farm Bureaus in each cycle. These grants are offered in amounts up to $500 for the following programs: classroom education, consumer awareness, leadership development. The purpose of the grant program is to support projects that will expand agricultural literacy. Grants are offered to county Farm Bureaus on a competitive basis with priority given to those programs demonstrating a need for financial support.
For detailed information on the grant program itself, download the GFB Foundation for Agriculture Grant Guidelines. We've compiled a list of some possible projects that could be eligible for grants, as well as a few things that would not be eligible. This is not a comprehensive list, but merely a starting point to help counties looking for ideas.

We are also offering grants to local 4-H and FFA chapters. Four grants will be offered, at $500 apiece, during each of the two application cycles. Here is a list of suggested projects for the 4-H/FFA grants, along with the Guidelines Document for these grants.
