Benefits Kane County Farm Bureau
Proceeds from the raffle go to Agricultural Scholarships and “Ag-in-the-Classroom” Programs. The Kane County Farm Bureau Foundation was established in 1986 by the Kane County Farm Bureau to carry out charitable work in the advancement of agricultural literacy and preparing students and leaders for careers in the agriculture industry. Over $25,000 in Scholarships and Internships were awarded for the 2007-08 school year.
As a not-for-profit entity, the Kane County Farm Bureau Foundation solicits and distributes private funding for agriculturally related education and leadership training, Ag-in-the-Classroom programs, Ag Literacy Library development, charitable activities and research. In recent years the Foundation has redoubled its efforts to support agricultural education at every grade level, including teaching teachers. The goal of this early and repeated exposure to farm and food topics is a greater consumer understanding of the food chain and ultimately more qualified high school graduates pursuing agricultural careers.
The Kane County Farm Bureau was one of the first county Farm Bureaus in the nation to organize and has a date of 1912 on its charter. Today we serve both rural and urban people who are interested in the well-being of agriculture. Farm Bureau is a voice for farmers and others who have a vested interest in agriculture. Our mission is to “Enhance the quality of life for member families, promote all aspects of agriculture and advocate good stewardship of our land and resources”.
