Our Commitment

Dedicated to supporting our rural communities through volunteering, local contributions, grants and more.

Overview

 

Each dot on this map represents a project, program or organization supported by our 2019 community involvement program.

Serving rural America means more than financing those who farm and ranch.

As a mission-driven financial cooperative, we believe in serving and enriching the rural communities where we live and work.

Our community involvement program focuses on ag education, young and beginning producers, hunger and nutrition, rural disaster relief and essential services. We support these initiatives through employee volunteering, financial contributions and grants.

Agriculture Education

We support a variety of efforts related to ag education including farm safety courses, urban and rural community outreach, and more.

Find out how educational programs like GrainBridge and Operating Wildlife are preparing the next generation of Kansas producers.

In Our Communities

Employees participate in our community involvement program through hands-on volunteer efforts. Annually, each employee is allocated eight hours of paid time to volunteer for an organization they choose to support. We also match employees’ donations to nonprofit organizations up to $250 per employee each year.

In 2019, employees volunteered more than 800 hours to give back to the communities where they live and work.
