CULTIVATING FUTURE Agribusiness Leaders
In 2000, UnitedAg founded the Agribusiness Education Foundation (AEF) for the purpose of helping members, employees of members and their families pave their way to educational and future success! The AEF provides financial assistance, business skills, and leadership development to advance the educational goals of UnitedAg members, their employees, and their employees’ dependents (children and grandchildren).
Since its inception, UnitedAg has awarded more than $1,311,000 in scholarship support to some 719 students. Previous scholarship winners have taken their place in management, government, market development, and foreign trade. Our primary fundraisers for the Foundation are our Annual Golf Tournament, Walk-A-Thon and Silent Auction held during UnitedAg’s Annual Conference each year. Private donations also are accepted year-round.
