NYS Agricultural Society Foundation

(Seen below, Kingston YMCA Grant Recipients)

Donors to the NYS Agricultural Society Foundation are seeding positive experiences in agriculture for youth and young adults. Since 2014, $50,000 has been invested in hands-on programming for junior high and high school students focused on production methods, agricultural science, technology and careers delivered by schools and community organizations across the state. Donors have also sponsored 15 young adults or Ambassadors – 18 to 25 years old – annually to attend the NYS Agricultural Society Forum and Summer Leadership Experience to build business skills, expand their professional networks, and sample potential educational, research and career tracks in the industry. What better way to grow informed consumers and employees for the future? 

If “growing” an informed public about agriculture is important to you, please join us as a donor: donate. This link will direct you to the Central NY Community Foundation.
