Why Donate

The Agribusiness Education Foundation (AEF) was created with the conviction that supporting the higher-education aspirations of our members, their employees and their families helps ensure a brighter and stronger future for the agricultural industry. In pursuit of this vision, the Foundation provides scholarship support to eligible members, their employees, and their children and grandchildren. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded over $1.5 million in scholarships to some 957 students, helping them to fulfill their educational goals.

Silent Auction

Taking place August 14 - 20, our annual Silent Auction is one of the primary sources of funding for the Agribusiness Education Foundation (AEF), our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Thanks to the generosity of several UnitedAg partners, we're able to raise funds for the Foundation via this year's virtual auction. Products include an assortment of coveted items, from electronics to designer bags and more!

Our primary source for fundraising for the Foundation is our Annual Golf Tournament, Walkathon and Silent Auction, which are held Annually. Proceeds from the Annual Golf Tournament, Walkathon and merchandise donated for the silent auction are a significant source of funding for the Foundation. The silent auction catalog features jewelry, accessories, vacation packages, paintings, electronics and much more. UnitedAg members enjoy purchasing goods from the annual silent auction. Merchandise donors will receive an itemized list at the end of the year showing the fair market value of their non-cash contributions for income tax deduction purposes.
