Thank you for your donation.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for your gift. Your willingness to support past, present, and future ag communicators in our community makes all the difference as we strive to enhance our industry of ag media professionals. You are helping the foundation to fund a myriad of professional development programs for our members and beyond.

Here is what our services, and ultimately, your contribution, mean to some of the people who have benefited from PIF Funds:

  • “Receiving the AAEA Scholarship allowed me to not only network with individuals in my field of choice, but helped me grow as a professional by allowing me to have access to a plethora of resources in the agricultural communications industry.”

Cameron Jodlowski, Future Ag Communicators Scholarship

  • “The AAEA scholarship offered me more than just financial support. Some of my most encouraging moments from college took place in AAEA scholarship interview rooms. Each experience reaffirmed my excitement for sharing agriculture stories and opened my eyes to the community AAEA creates for ag communicators. Because of these experiences, I plan to continue to be involved in the organization. I’m forever grateful to AAEA for its investment and encouragement as I begin my career.”

Courtney Leeper, Future Ag Communicators Scholarship

  • “I am humbled and honored to be a part of continuing Andy’s legacy. I will use the stipend from the award to attend the 2018 IFAJ Congress in the Netherlands. And I’ll continue to find ways to give back to AAEA — an organization that has given a lot to me.”

Jessie Scott, Andy Markwart Horizon Award
