We have exciting news! TWO Generous donors — one a Minnesota-based family foundation and the other a corporate community fund — are putting up a $20,000 match for our Give to the Max campaign. Our lofty goal is to fully match these funds, and raise a total of $40,000 for our 2024 programming. Early giving has begun, and we are already over $5,000 in.
SFA is known for being nimble in responding to the changing needs of farmers. In 2024, we plan to expand our programming to better serve seasoned farmers by offering multi-day, field intensives and schools that dig deep into topics like direct marketing, stockmanship, and nutrient density in food production. We plan to partner with national thought leaders to expand our understanding of these topics and others.
Farmers play a pivotal role in climate change mitigation and adaptation. The educational opportunities we provide will help farmers adapt their operations to be resilient in a changing climate. It’s an investment for the long haul.
Please consider making a donation to SFA today. Early giving is underway, with the official Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 16. All gifts will be matched up to $20,000. New to Give to the Max? Click here to see what “Minnesota’s giving holiday” is all about.
We will continue our annual signature events in 2024: the SFA Annual Conference is scheduled for February 10, and the Midwest Soil Health Summit “Managing for Profit with the Soil Health Principles,” is March 13 & 14.
