AMERICAN FARM BUREAU'S FOUNDATION FOR AGRICULTURE DONATIONS REACH $1.8 MILLION
Source: American Farm Bureau Foundation news release

Donations to the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture totaled $1.8 million for 2013, the highest-ever in a calendar year.

"We rely on our donors to fund our initiatives so we can have an agriculturally literate society," said Foundation Chairman Bob Stallman.

"Thanks in large part to generous donor contributions, 2013 was a remarkable year for the Foundation, in terms of building awareness, understanding and a positive perception of agriculture through education."

Volunteer engagement in local communities to foster a deeper understanding of food, fiber and energy is a continuing focus of the Foundation. Urban outreach events, building partnerships in the STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) area, Spanish translations of materials and creation of additional assessment guides for educational resources are planned for 2014.

The Foundation continually updates its tool chest of ready-to-use resources for educators covering a variety of agricultural themes.
