The Professional Dairy Producers Foundation (PDPF) awards grants to non-profit organizations that share the Foundation’s passion and vision for education in dairy communities. Grant dollars are available to those organizations with new, unique ideas that build producer professionalism and maintain public trust in what happens on dairy farms.
You or someone you know may be working toward the same goals as we are.
Since 2010, the Foundation has awarded about $250,000 in grants that support education programs that grow the next generation of the dairy community and contribute to a proactive and prepared dairy community.
Programs funded by the Foundation include youth leadership programs, farmer led-watershed initiatives, mentor programs, communications training, animal wellbeing programing, financial literacy, agricultural career days, safety and agricultural literacy education and peer groups.
Organizations with a tax status of 501(c)(3) or (5) may apply for grants of up to $5,000. Additional grant criteria can be found at www.dairyfoundation.org. Grant applications are due December 1, 2018.
PDPF is the dairy industry’s foundation. Together, we raise funds and conduct programs that grow and sustain our industry for future generations.
