American Farm Bureau asks for #AgGives on #GivingTuesday

Published:

#GivingTuesday, a global day of giving takes place on Nov. 28, and on that day, the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is urging support for #AgGive, an industry-wide campaign to raise funds, find volunteers, and build awareness of agriculture in local communities.

#AgGives is a space to tell your story in person or on social media, share ag literacy resources, connect with other ag literacy advocates, and become a part of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s efforts to educate and address the many misconceptions in agriculture.

“Although monetary donations are part of #AgGives, consider giving the gift of knowledge and sharing information with others who may not have a farm background so they can understand what you’re doing on your farm or ranch,” said Zippy Duvall, chairman of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and president of the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Throughout 2017, the Foundation has been celebrating the 50th anniversary of its founding. In the spirit of “50,” a goal of a 50-percent increase in donations was set for the month of November.

To help achieve that goal and spur contributions, every donor contributing $25 or more to the Foundation on #GivingTuesday will receive one entry for a chance to win an exclusive Book of the Year bundle valued at over $80.00! The bundle will include the Foundation’s most recent and popular Book of the Year selections – “The Beeman,” “The Apple Orchard Riddle,” “First Peas to the Table,” “Sleep Tight Farm,” and the 2018 Book of the Year, to be announced in January during the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention and IDEAg Trade Show.
