Agent Charitable Fund
Farm Bureau of Michigan Agent Charitable Fund is a donor advised fund within the Michigan Foundation for Agriculture. It will serve as a fund for Farm Bureau agents to contribute to for the purpose of supporting charitable causes throughout Michigan. Following the purpose and vision of the Michigan Foundation of Agriculture, the fund will grant monies to provide food, build agriculture awareness, educate, and help citizens throughout the state.
For many years, Farm Bureau has worked on creating great learning environments for kids in schools. What we’ve found is that when children are hungry and worried about where their next meal might come from, they can’t learn. And for those children living on the edge…they can never unleash the power of their dreams.
“When we started talking about ways we could make an impact--the numbers--they were just staggering. As a business owner, when you want to do something to help your community--this just made sense.”
— Jodi Fritzsche
“Through educational opportunities, time and resources, we have the ability to help people better themselves, so that one day they don’t have to wonder where their next meal is coming from.”

Making an impact
“We’re not just looking to write a check. We're deciding to make an impact. Providing opportunity for families and for children to succeed—and seeing it through. We're taking action and finding a solution to end hunger in Michigan.”
