Our Programming

Education, Advocacy, and Grant Programs

Grant funding is available from the South Dakota Agricultural Foundation through two of our grant programs:

  • Building Rural Communities (BRC) grant program

  • Ag Innovators (AI) Youth Education grant program

These grants were developed to demonstrate the importance of rural communities and the value of organizations that work together to improve rural life.

The SD Ag Foundation encourages South Dakotans to start thinking of projects in their schools and communities that can empower future agricultural leaders and professionals. In 2017-18, the Foundation supported 23 organizations in South Dakota through these grant programs.
