GIVING BACK

Making our communities better places to live and work is part of who we are

Wisconsin FFA Foundation

Community Giving

United Cooperative believes that strong communities are necessary for the growth and development of our farmer-owned business. Each year we set aside resources for community giving in the areas where our member-owners and customers live. Our focus is in building the next generation of farmers and leaders for the workforce that will be needed to keep our organization thriving.

We're sorry, we do not provide support to individual benefits, religious organizations, political parties or political candidates.

We believe in supporting these young adults and are hopeful some of these students will seek careers in Wisconsin agriculture and the businesses that support agriculture, or become part of the fabric that makes up our great communities throughout the state".
