WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 7, 2022) – Farm Journal Foundation recently published its latest impact report, showcasing its programmatic work and successes from the past year.
The past year has been one of transition, as COVID-19 continued to bring unprecedented challenges, but many glimmers of a new normal started to appear. Farm Journal Foundation worked within this new normal in 2021 – the organization was proud to bring back a number of in-person events over the past year, including its first-ever in-person Speaker Series session, while also conducting a number of events and outreach virtually.
Importantly, the Foundation continues to build influence, develop new partnerships, deepen existing relationships, and create an impact, in spite of pandemic-related challenges. Highlights from our 2021 Impact Report include:
International Coalition Building: The Foundation was proud to join the Agriculture Innovation Mission for Climate (AIM4C) initiative for COP26, as well as the Sustainable Productivity Growth Coalition led by USDA.
America Grows Act: Following State Dialogue events with Farm Journal Foundation, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced the America Grows Act, a bipartisan bill to significantly increase U.S. investment in agricultural research.
Media Coverage: The Foundation’s work and thought leadership were featured in national media, including CNN, The Hill, and Politico.
New K-12 Educational Content: The Foundation started an exciting new project creating Next Generation Science Standards curriculum for K-12 students. This content will be launched in 2022.
