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:

  • “I am incredibly grateful for how my PIF sponsored internship helped me grow as an agricultural communicator. The things I learned can’t be taught in a classroom and will serve me well as I begin my career.

Cheyenne Dunn, 2018 PIF Sponsored editorial communications intern with Successful Farming

  • “The Alltech Cultivating Young Journalists Award offered a golden opportunity to network with fellow ag journalists at Ag Media Summit – not only on a national level, but on a global level as well. I’ve been an AAEA member for several years, but after receiving this stipend and attending AMS for the first time, I plant to get more involved in different committees and special interest groups within AAEA. I am grateful for the opportunity to gain insight from seasoned ag journalists, and hope I can pay it forward and offer the same support and encouragement for other young ag communicators.

Tyler Harris, 2018 Alltech Cultivating Young Journalists Award Recipient

  • “The impact winning this scholarship had on me was honestly unexpected. I knew it was a great honor and would help pay for my education from the start, but I didn’t realize until recently how many great people and opportunities it would bring into my life. I can’t thank AAEA enough for the support that has been given to me not only financially, but also through a genuine concern in making sure I succeed.”
