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 (2) opportunities to apply for a Foundation Grant each year. Up to 20 grants will be awarded in each cycle. These grants are offered to county Farm Bureaus in amounts up to $350 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.

There are two grant application cycles each year:

Winter / Spring - Applications due December 15

Summer / Fall - Applications due June 30

We've compiled a list of some possible projects that could be eligible for Foundation 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.
