    The Wayne County Farm Bureau Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization was established in 2004 in order to offer a financial structure for members and friends of the Farm Bureau to contribute to agricultural education in Wayne County.  
    Our mission of “Growing the future of agriculture by supporting the youth of today” has led to the creation of this successful scholarship program. Through the generosity of our membership, the Foundation has been able to award 58 scholarships since 2005, totaling $29,000.


The Foundation would be honored to oversee and distribute your charitable gift. Your donation can support additional scholarships for Wayne County students or can support agricultural education activities in the county such as our Ag in the Classroom program.
