10 May Recognizing the Impact of AFA Donors
We reached our goal! Thanks to the generous donations from individuals and businesses, and an anonymous donor who provided $5,000 in matching dollars, we exceeded our current goal. Because of these contributions, the AFA Scholarship Endowment Fund at the McPherson County Community Foundation has exceeded $50,000 and will help support our annual AFA Scholarship.
The McPherson Chamber of Commerce Ag Committee is dedicated to helping today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders in agriculture. We greatly appreciate these donors whose investment will impact local students and the future of agriculture:
