2011 Community Impact Report
Farm Credit’s commitment to a thriving rural America extends beyond providing financial services. Farm Credit’s legacy of service supports rural American communities through volunteerism and financial contributions to organizations and initiatives that improve the lives and livelihoods of farmers and ranchers at both the local and national level.
To underscore this focus, Farm Credit’s national contributions program targets organizations that work in three focus areas:
- Advocates for Agriculture: Organizations that advocate for the policy perspectives of their agricultural members
- Producers of Tomorrow: Programs for young, beginning, small and minority farmers, and youth-focused ag education programs
- Friends of Agriculture: Programs and organizations that promote economic opportunity, social advancement and the overall well-being of farmers, ranchers and rural America
Additionally, Farm Credit’s banks and associations give millions of dollars and thousands of volunteer hours annually to support local and regional programs.
