Oregon Agricultural Education Foundation


For more than 30 years the Oregon Agricultural Education Foundation, a 501c3 organization, has delivered educational programs through the Oregon Farm Bureau to increase agricultural knowledge and understanding for all Oregonians.


The Foundation’s strength is putting donation dollars to work in programs that connect farm leaders, inspire future leaders and honor Oregon’s rich agricultural heritage through four active projects.
