The Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture was formed in 1998 and since its inception, the foundation has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide scholarships and grants which fund programs and projects designed to help improve agriculture and the quality of life in rural Kansas. The three areas of emphasis and action are:
A sincere thanks to everyone who generously supports the Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and the positive impact they enable the foundation to have on people working in agriculture and living in rural Kansas. The variety of financial supporters enables the foundation to provide scholarships and grants to further the mission of supporting and enhancing agriculture and the farm and ranch families of Kansas.
Each year, KFB's Foundation for Agriculture awards scholarships to college students. Forty-four recipients have received $27,000 in scholarships for the 2018-19 school year.
This annual tournament helps the KFB Foundations provide funding for programs aimed at improving the quality of life in Kansas through agriculture education, leadership development and legal advocacy.
The KFB Foundations and Kansas State University will partner for the “Celebrate Agriculture Fundraising Golf Tournament”, Friday, August 31 at Colbert Hills.
