Dollars Available To Support Dairy Students, Products, Producers

The application deadline for grants from Dairy’s Foundation is June 1. Grants of up to $10,000 are available.

Use the money for new programs to build the skills of students or dairy producers or increase public trust in the people and products of dairy.

“Grants from Dairy’s Foundation are a terrific way to launch new ideas or programs to benefit students, dairy producers or share dairy’s story with consumers,” says Brian Forrest, Stratford dairy producer and chair of the foundation’s board of directors. “Dairy’s Foundation has worked for more than two decades to support educational and sustainability initiatives to strengthen the dairy industry.”

As the only public-held national foundation supporting dairy education and initiatives across the entire dairy industry food chain, Dairy’s Foundation strives to identify emerging educational needs and help fill gaps in funding for new or innovative programs.

Since 2010, Dairy’s Foundation has awarded more than $335,000 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.

Applications will be reviewed by an independent grant-selection committee. Organizations with a tax status of 501(c)(3) or (5) may apply.
