Source: Farm Credit news release

Farm Credit is currently accepting applications for the 2015 Farm Credit National Contributions Program funding cycle. Organizations wishing to be considered for financial support in 2015 must submit an online application by September10.

"Farm Credit supports organizations that share our commitment to helping rural communities thrive and agriculture to flourish," said Leigh Picchetti, senior vice president of national communications for Farm Credit. "The partners who receive donations of time and money make important contributions to a diverse, successful agriculture industry and a robust rural America."

The Farm Credit National Contributions Program complements the significant local and regional Farm Credit giving and volunteerism programs happening every day, and focuses on supporting organizations and programs in three areas:

Agriculture Education and Training: Education programs that prepare young, beginning, small and minority producers for a future in agribusiness and that teach youth populations about agriculture.
Industry Champions: Programs that support the overall well-being of farmers, ranchers and rural America and that help to educate the general population about agriculture.
Public Policy: Organizations that promote America's producers and work to move farm-friendly policy forward and keep the business of agriculture financially viable.
