AgGeorgia Offering Community Ag Project Grants Up to $5,000

AgGeorgia Farm Credit has allocated $50,000 to support non-profit organizations in their endeavors and to further the future of agriculture in Georgia. The Community Mission Fund operates on an application-based grant system, with grants of up to $5,000 awarded per organization per year. The fund was created in 2023 and funded 12 organizations last year.

The Fund's mission is to build strong partnerships and alliances, leveraging resources to preserve and promote farmers, families, and our rural communities.  The fund has two main objectives: to invest in the future of agriculture and to enhance and impact the quality of life in rural Georgia.  To be considered for funding, organizations' values and purpose must align with the fund's mission.  As part of the application, organizations are to submit a detailed proposal for a project the grant will fund.

“We are excited about the 2nd year of our Community Mission Fund program,” said Corey Cottle, CMO of AgGeorgia Farm Credit. “The organizations awarded with grants in 2023 have done some amazing things with their funding, and we are eager to see what will be accomplished by the next group of recipients.”

Grant applications will be accepted through June 30, 2024. To qualify for a grant, organizations must be located within the 79 county area where AgGeorgia Farm Credit conducts business. For more information and to apply, please visit the AgGeorgia Farm Credit Community Mission Fund page at
