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 $1,411,250 in scholarship support to some 805 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.
We are deeply grateful to our Chancellor's Circle, who provide the AEF Foundation the resources to support our young leaders in the advancement of their academic and professional goals. The Chancellor’s Circle is a distinguished group of companies or individuals that support AEF’s programs such as the Scholarship, Internship, and Agribusiness Emerging Leaders Academy developed for the Agribusiness Education Foundation. Below are companies and individuals who have generously donated to AEF. Thank you!
