A 100 YEAR LEGACY OF SUPPORT FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES AND AGRICULTURE

Community

Farm Credit supports all types of rural infrastructure, communications services, and agriculture. We have customers of all sizes. We lend to multi-state rural electric cooperatives providing power to rural communities, to new farmer veterans growing specialty beef on a few acres of land and everything in between.

In order to support rural communities and agriculture, we must look to the future. That is why Farm Credit is committed to helping young and beginning farmers. These individuals are the future of rural America which is why Farm Credit provides educational and financial support to these vital individuals and the farm related businesses upon which they rely.

Through our century of involvement in thriving rural communities, we’ve also grown increasingly committed to helping them continue to succeed long into the future. As part of that commitment, Farm Credit Gives to industry groups who share our commitment to a strong agricultural future – organizations that help develop future leaders, promote industry sectors and who focus on encouraging the next generation of agricultural professionals. The organizations supported by the national Farm Credit program represent only one level of Farm Credit’s commitment to agriculture and rural communities. Our individual banks and lending associations enhance this commitment with their own donations on a local level, supporting local 4-H and FFA chapters as well as hospitals and fire departments, schools and other important community groups.

Farm Credit provides needed funding to dozens of organizations through our national contributions program, including:
