Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation Gets a Name Change to Strengthen Ties to OKFB

Thu, 04 Oct 2018 12:13:01 CDT

Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation Gets a Name Change to Strengthen Ties to OKFB The Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation board of directors recently announced the non-profit foundation has changed its name to the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture.



With the support of Oklahoma Farm Bureau members and friends throughout the agriculture industry, the foundation has worked to promote agriculture, educate consumers, and support rural communities since its founding. However, the foundation board believed the foundation’s ties to Farm Bureau needed to be strengthened.



“The name Farm Bureau is prominent in our rural communities because our members have been active and engaged across our state for generations,” said David VonTungeln, Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture president. “When the foundation steps in to support education, nutrition, disaster assistance and more, we want to make sure the familiar name of Oklahoma Farm Bureau is visible for all to see.”



The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is supported by Farm Bureau members through optional membership dues, along with larger financial contributions from various individuals, businesses, county Farm Bureaus and friends.



“With this change comes a renewed excitement and dedication to grow and support our state’s farmers and ranchers,” VonTungeln said. “We will continue the same quality programs that have made an impact across our state while creating new opportunities to share the great things happening on Oklahoma farms and ranches.”



Founded in 2011, the foundation was formed as a 501(c)(3) non-profit to enhance awareness and understanding of agriculture’s contribution and importance to the state of Oklahoma. The foundation supports a variety of projects and programs, such as the Beef for Backpacks and Pork for Packs programs, the Grown for You commodity trailer, and the Bushels for Books program.
