History and Mission of the IFU Education Foundation
Since 1915, Iowa Farmers Union members have worked together to strengthen the independent family farm through education, legislation and cooperation and to provide Iowans with sustainable production, safe food, and healthy communities.
The Iowa Farmers Union Education Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 1998 to carry out the educational mission at the heart of all of the Farmers Union’s work. Education is at the base of the Farmers Union triangle because we believe that education is the foundation of our success.
The mission of the IFU Education Foundation is to promote a viable system of sustainable agriculture and high quality of life in rural communities through education of farmers, rural residents, and urban consumers; cooperation among farmers; and citizen activism.
