With the holiday season upon us, the Professional Dairy Producers Foundation is looking to make the season a little brighter for the dairy community with opportunities for grants up to $5,000 to fund programs around the country that will impact dairy producers, students and consumers.
Applications are due Thursday, Dec. 1, and notifications of award decisions will be made by January 1, 2023, just in time for your organization to have an impact in the New Year. Applications are reviewed by an independent selection committee.
Since 2010, Professional Dairy Producers Foundation, also known as Dairy’s Foundation, has awarded more than $300,000 in grants to support vital programs that equip the dairy community with the latest tools and resources to be effective managers, leaders and ambassadors of dairy to their neighbors in rural and urban settings locally and around the globe.
“As budgets continue to tighten for many organizations, Dairy’s Foundation grants are a great way to get a new idea or program off the ground,” said Brian Forrest, Dairy’s Foundation board chair and dairy producer from Stratford, Wis. “Dairy’s Foundation is made possible by the generous support of dairy producers and the dairy community, and we are excited to provide opportunities to encourage the next generation of dairy producers and strengthen trust with consumers.”
