The mission of the Montana Farm Bureau Foundation (MFBFo) is to support Montana agriculture through education, research, and community support, with a special emphasis for the development of our youth.

How does the MFB Foundation carry out its mission? 

Assisting in Education:  Whether it’s funding an adult agricultural education program or providing materials to urban students, we realize that our support is fundamental in providing future leaders with the knowledge and skills they need in order to be effective.        

Encouraging Research:  Recent improvements in technology have made agriculture both more efficient and more productive. In order to ensure and continue this current progression and to give Montana’s producers the most up-do-date information, we work closely with similarly-interested groups.        

Supporting Montana’s Rural Communities:  Agriculture reaches every corner of the state and is the main artery of rural Montana. In giving youth the opportunity for leadership and offering educational programs, we work to broaden the impact of Montana agriculture.

With continued support, the MFB Foundation is able to offer yearly programs in an effort to promote youth education in agriculture, including: the annual Youth Speech Contest, Mini Grants throughout the year, the Bernard Greufe Honorary Scholarship, the Young Farmer and Rancher (YF&R) Scholarship to the American Farm Bureau Federation national YF&R leadership conference in February. Many other programs and funding opportunities support groups such as Agriculture in Montana Schools, Montana 4-H, Montana FFA, REAL Montana and the Montana State University College of Agriculture.        

MFBFo is a qualified charity under IRS tax code 501 (c) (3) making all donations tax deductible for our supporters.
