Montgomery County Community Foundation
“Farmers do more than feed, fuel and clothe the world. They are the lifeblood of rural communities, supporting the local economy and giving back to the community wherever possible.” – Monsanto
As banks began to consolidate in 2000-01, we became successor trustee of three local farms. Over the last several years, the Montgomery County Community Foundation has worked diligently to maintain and improve these farms. Our farm manager assists us in managing and providing oversight, and our Board of Directors participate in regular site visits to our farms.
Owning this farmland fits well within the Foundation’s mission to better our community as our community is very focused and dependent upon agriculture. Farmers want to see a better life for generations to come and they work hard to ensure that will happen. We do too. Understanding that we are also stewards of the gifts entrusted to us is at the center of everything we do. We take that role very seriously as we honor the charitable desires of our donors – both living and those who have left their intentions in a bequest. Our flexibility allows us to help guide our donors to support the charitable causes they care about.
As we continue to maintain ethical stewardship of the multiple farms that have been gifted to the Foundation, they continue to yield a harvest far beyond the bushels of corn and beans. From sending students to college…. providing medical care for the needy…. and nearly every charitable cause in between, these farms continue to give in every season.
