Support Educational Outreach and Help Create a More Agriculturally Literate Society

In today's fast-paced world, a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of agriculture is often overlooked. This gap in knowledge poses a significant issue, as agriculture forms the backbone of our society that contributes to our food security, economy, and environmental sustainability. Addressing this problem is crucial for the future of our world, and that's where the MAITC, Inc. Foundation steps in.

We support Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom, who provides high-quality, relevant educational resources to teachers, equipping them to instill agricultural knowledge to students in an engaging, effective manner. By doing so, we're nurturing a more agriculturally literate society and shaping a future where agriculture is valued by all. But we can't do this alone; we need your support!

146,933 Minnesota students K-12 were directly impacted by the work of the Minnesota Ag in the Classroom during the 2022-2023 program year!

This is an increase over the previous year. The program and resource impact is approximately $4 per student!
