Give a gift of grain – Dekalb County Farm Bureau

The DeKalb County Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and the DeKalb County Community Foundation are collaborating to promote philanthropy among the agriculture community. Farmers and landowners may earmark grain donations for specific initiatives.

We invite you to join in giving back, getting connected, and building a better community throughout DeKalb County.

Why Donate Grain?
Donating a gift of grain is a simple way to make a lasting difference. The value of the grain can be used to support charitable causes in your community, support a specific nonprofit organization important to you, or start an endowed fund in the name of your family. No matter what you chose to support, you can be sure that your gift of grain is growing the future of your community.

How You Benefit
By giving grain, you avoid including the sale of the grain in your farm income. Although a charitable income tax deduction is generally not available to you, the avoidance of declaring it as income is a significant benefit.

How The Community Benefits
Your gift of grain makes a positive impact in the community. By aligning generosity with your charitable interests, you can provide opportunity and support to many areas.
