Unable to attend the NGFA’s 123rd Annual Convention that starts on March 17? You still can participate in a critically important fundraising campaign for the National Grain and Feed Foundation.
For the third year in a row, NGFA members – both companies and individuals – will donate and pledge funds to “Fill the Bin” and replenish Foundation funds. Upcoming projects for which funding is needed include:
- Waterways Public Education Campaign
- Animal Agriculture Alliance Support
- Regional Safety and Regulatory Compliance Seminars
- Fire and Explosion Research
- Video/Software Investments for Safety Education Programs
Contributions are directed to research and public education projects as determined by a seven-member industry Board of Trustees to be directly beneficial to the grain, feed and processing industry. As a 501(c)(3) organization, all contributions are tax-deductible. And all funds donated go directly to research and education projects; there are no administrative fees assessed.
At convention, members will be challenged to raise at least $50,000 for the Foundation’s very important work. To help give the “Fill the Bin” campaign a running start, please click here to make your donation – and thanks!
