Donate to the Foundation

 

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation is organized under IRS Code 501(c)3. Contributions are deductible as allowed by law. You can make a contribution by sending a check payable to the MFB Foundation to P.O. Box 64370, St. Paul, MN 55164. Donors may specify on the memo line which area of the Foundation they wish their gift to be used towards, otherwise the donation will be used to meet the mission of the Foundation.

Foundation Donation Avenues


In addition to voluntary donations to the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation, below are programs for individuals or businesses to donate to the Foundation.
 

Century Club


In celebration of Minnesota Farm Bureau’s 100th Anniversary, join the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation Century Club, a fundraising campaign to commemorate the past and celebrate the future of the Minnesota Farm Bureau.

 

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation Century Club recognizes individuals who donate $1,000 to the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation above any current giving. Century Club members will receive a Farm Bureau Century Club Pin, be recognized at our 100th Minnesota Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in 2018 and be invited to a Foundation sponsored “Century Club Dinner.”

Donations can be made in installments. Arrangements can be made with Ruth Meirick at ruth.meirick@fbmn.org or 651-768-2115.

Gifts of Grain


Farmers have the option to make a gift of agricultural crops to the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation. The farmer delivers the crop to the elevator, crop merchandiser or delivers to on-farm storage and uses the form to instruct the elevator to transfer the crop to charity. The charity receives the warehouse receipt and collects proceeds. The farmer can include the production expenses on their tax returns.

Annual Meeting Foundation Auction


The 2016 auction will be on Friday, November 18 and will begin at 7 p.m. or immediately following the Awards Program that evening. This year, we are seeking auction item donations from the counties of Meeker through Yellow Medicine. We ask that items have a value of $75 or greater and be delivered to our office by November 14 or to the Foundation booth at the Annual Meeting no later than 3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 18. Attach a label to the item with your county’s name, value of item and a brief item description for identification.

County Board Challenge

The Minnesota Farm Bureau (MFB) Foundation Board of Directors and the MFB Promotion & Education Committee are proud that we will be celebrating 30 years of the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation. We are challenging counties to give a gift of $300 this year and be recognized as a “Golden County” or donate $10 per board member will be recognized as a “County Board Challenge” participant.
