Teacher Resource Grants


Purpose:  To celebrate our 50th anniversary the Foundation will offer 50 - $50 teacher resource grants.


The purpose of these grants is to provide funds to educators to enable them to purchase accurate agricultural literacy materials from the AFBFA store for use in their classrooms. By providing this grant, AFBFA hopes to help teachers educate their students with more accurate information about agriculture.


Eligibility: Educators employed by a school and working in grades K-12 may apply for funding.


Application Guidelines:

  • Applications are closed.
  • All  applicants will receive notification by August 1, 2017.
  • 50 teachers will win $50 store credits.
  • If more than 50 educators apply for these grants, eligible educators will be randomly selected to receive the grants.
  • Grantees will be issued a $50 credit to the AFBFA store. This credit may only be used on AFBFA resource items. A list will be provided of unacceptable purchases. We expect the purchases to be made within 30 days of receiving the grant.  If the grant is not used within this period, AFBFA reserves the right to revoke the grant, and make the grant available to someone else. Receipt must be sent to foundation@fb.org within 7 days of purchase.
  • Following purchase, grantees are required to send a copy of their order receipt to foundation@fb.org so that we may confirm that the funds have been properly spent.
  • Since much of our funding comes from individual donors, grantees will be asked to write a thank you note to a donor explaining how they plan to use the purchased materials. Notes should be submitted no later than 1 month after purchase has been made.
  • Grantees will be asked, but not required, to take a picture of themselves or their students using the materials and send it to AFBFA. NOTE: If students are in photos a photo release form must be signed by a guardian of each student.
