GFB Foundation awards $6,500 in grants to increase ag literacy

Georgia Farm Bureau


Congratulations to Cherokee, Clayton, Colquitt, Habersham, Harris, Jones, McDuffie, Schley, Tattnall and Treutlen County Farm Bureaus. Each Farm Bureau received a $500 grant from the Georgia Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture to fund projects in their communities to educate consumers and students about agriculture.  The foundation awarded the grants in January in its winter/spring grant cycle.

The foundation also awarded $500 grants to the Evans County 4-H, Newton College & Career Academy FFA and the Wilcox County High School FFA to fund leadership development and ag literacy projects the student organizations will conduct.

The GFB Foundation for Agriculture is a non-profit charitable foundation that funds projects to increase the public’s understanding of agriculture, offers scholarships to students pursuing careers in agriculture or closely related fields and funds leadership development programs.
