The Knox County Farm Bureau Foundation was incorporated in 1985, and was founded for the purposes of Research, Education, Conservation, and Leadership Development.  The Foundation is a not-for-profit tax exempt entity that strives for development and promotion of agriculture in Knox County.

The Foundation has helped promote the importance of agriculture through providing:

  • Support for Ag in the Classroom efforts in Knox County
  • Scholarships for college bound seniors studying agriculture
  • Internships for Knox County college students
  • Scholarships to Knox County elementary teachers attending Summer Ag Institute

There are many ways to support the continuation of strong agriculture research, education, conservation, and leadership.  Contributions can be gifts of property, grain, cash, transfer of a CD, bequests, charitable remainder trusts, a matching gift, annuity trusts or a gift of life insurance.  Special memorials and endowments may also be given for the establishment of ongoing programs and/or scholarships in the memory of a family member or other loved ones with the approval of the Foundation Board.
