In 2019, UFA introduced the Rural Communities Foundation and committed to providing $500,000 in funding over five years. We achieved this goal in 2023 and are proud to report the funding was shared with a total of 20 projects.


Based on the success of this grant program, UFA has reaffirmed our commitment with the development of the UFA Agricultural Community Foundation.


UFA’s Agricultural Community Foundation is dedicated to supporting projects that enrich education, recreation and culture for the betterment of agricultural communities. Through our rural communities grant program, we are pleased to announce $100,000 in funding grants available in 2024. This is one component of the new foundation, as we continue to advance our vision in how we serve agricultural communities. Watch for more details on the application process coming soon!
