Agent Charitable Fund
The Farm Bureau of Michigan Agent Charitable Fund is a donor advised fund within the Michigan Foundation for Agriculture. It serves as a fund for Farm Bureau agents, clients, and partners to contribute to charitable causes throughout Michigan. Following the purpose and vision of the Michigan Foundation of Agriculture, the fund grants 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. When children are hungry and worried about where their next meal might come from, they can’t learn. And those children facing food insecurity…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 you want to do something to help your community.”
— 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.”
— Angela Shannon
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.”
