The Program is open to Eligible Farmers.

Farmer Eligibility – An Eligible Farmer must: 1) be 21 years of age or older at time of enrollment and 2) be actively engaged in farming, in the continental United States, a minimum of 250 acres of one or more crops. A farmer is “actively engaged in farming” if he or she performs the work on the farm or hires and actively manages others who do so.

Eligible Charities – In order to be eligible to receive a grant under the Program (a “Grant”), the charity selected by an entrant (a “Charity”) must be a tax-exempt public charity, meaning that the Charity must be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) or as a “unit of government” under Section 170(c)(1). Section 501(c)(3) is a section of the Internal Revenue Code that establishes criteria for tax-exempt charitable organizations. Section 170(c)(1) refers to agencies that conduct business to benefit the public at large, such as public schools, libraries and municipalities.
