The Georgia Agribusiness Council Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, was created to help grow funding initiatives to help support agriculture education. GAC is a proud sponsor of agribusiness awards and programs for FFA and 4-H, in addition to many other education projects.
The Council created the Dr. Joe Crane Memorial Classroom Grant program for Georgia teachers interested in promoting agricultural literacy; provides William C. “Bill” Baisley “Sumpin Big” Scholarships to Georgia college students demonstrating a need for financial assistance while seeking an agricultural degree; and sponsors the UGA CAES Congressional Fellowship Program.
Through generous support to the GAC Foundation, the Council will continue to invest in these programs and others to expand opportunities available to young people.
