Nurturing the Scholarship
of Tomorrow's Ag Leaders
What comes to mind when you think of agriculture?
Probably soil. Seeds. Growth. Crops. But agriculture means a lot more.
Agriculture touches every individual. It's woven into every aspect of our economy, from the food safety standards that keep you healthy to the award-winning hyacinth in your backyard, from the cotton in your favorite golf shirt to the fuel in your hybrid. And it's the number-one industry in Illinois.
As a result, agriculture requires leaders who have a passion for the community, technological innovation, and implementing the highest standards of safety. Whether you're a student pursuing an agriculture degree or a donor who wants to give, it starts with you.
And that's where the Champaign County Farm Bureau Foundation helps. Since our inception—and with the help of generous donors—we've provided over a half million dollars to Champaign County students.
When it comes to agriculture, it's time to think beyond crops. Think business. Think mechanics. Think fashion. Think communication. Part of the vast array of "green collar" fields, agriculture is one of the fastest-emerging job sectors in the nation. Think you've got what it takes? If so, you may be eligible for a Foundation scholarship.
When you give to the Champaign County Farm Bureau Foundation, you'll fund scholarships to students from Champaign County pursuing education in such diverse agricultural fields as forestry, education, dietetics, horticulture, diesel mechanics, engineering, farm management, and animal science. With your help, we can expand the size and scope of our support.
Help nurture the scholarship of tomorrow's ag leaders. You'll make a powerful impact on the community—and the world.
