(Decatur County, IN) – The Decatur County Community Foundation (DCCF) announces the return of its Harvest A Row donation program.
Harvest A Row has become a traditional method for local agriculture families to give to DCCF.
Each fall the Foundation offers an opportunity for farmers to Harvest a Row and work with their local elevator to dedicate a portion of those sales to DCCF, which directs those donations into the Ag Field of Interest Fund—a fund designed to support ag-related projects and education in the county.
The Ag Field of Interest Fund was started in 2008 as the brainchild of former Foundation board members Jay Hatton, Dale Crites, and Dan Wilson, and was created to provide grants for local, non-profit ag programs.
Since its inception, the Fund has supported FFA and 4-H projects, has paid to bring high-profile agriculture speakers to the area, and has been used for educational programs such as grain elevator safety.
To make a bigger impact, the committee works to grow the fund each fall, and encourages farmers to “Harvest A Row.”
For more information on how you can Harvest a Row, or support the Ag Field of Interest Fund the rest of this year, please contact the Decatur County Community Foundation at (812) 662-6364 or by emailing [email protected].
