This Giving Tuesday, the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation is looking to inspire generosity from donors who wish to support agriculture education and leadership programs and activities for years to come.
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement to support causes that matter most to people across the world. The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation is looking to inspire farmers, agriculturists, rural residents and others with a passion for agriculture to make a donation on Tuesday, December 3.
Donations made to the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation fund programs like the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Leadership Institute, Young Farmer and Agriculturist activities, the Promotion and Education Committee in addition to FFA and 4-H programs.
“This campaign is meant to build a solid foundation for the next 100 years, so our current and future county Farm Bureau members can continue to benefit from leadership and education programming,” shared WFBF Chief Administrative Officer Dale Beaty.
As Wisconsin Farm Bureau celebrates its Centennial, the organization has set a goal of raising $100,000 to celebrate 100 years of Farm Bureau by December 2020.
Rural Mutual Insurance Company has agreed to match all donations $10,000 or less, up to a total of $100,000.
“The Leadership Institute helped build on my skillset as a leader in agriculture, Farm Bureau and my community,” said St. Croix County Farm Bureau member Leslie Svacina. “Today, I’m continuing to put to practice the communication and advocacy skills in my work as a farmer and collaborating with decision makers in my community.”
The campaign recently surpassed the halfway mark, with just over $50,000 in donations. As a 501(c)3 organization, donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
