The Dane Coun­ty Farm­ers’ Mar­ket believes that invest­ing in today’s youth will build bet­ter farms and farm­ers for tomorrow. 

An edu­ca­tion­al schol­ar­ship fund has been estab­lished. With seed mon­ey pro­vid­ed by gen­er­ous DCFM pro­duc­ers and patrons, the pur­pose of the fund is to pro­vide grants to promis­ing stu­dents inter­est­ed in pur­su­ing a career in agriculture.

Admin­is­tered by the Madi­son Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion, the fund can be accessed at The Dane Coun­ty Farmer’s Mar­ket Schol­ar­ship Fund. 

If you are inter­est­ed in donat­ing, the fund num­ber is: 8090802. Your tax-deductible dona­tion can make a dif­fer­ence for a gen­er­a­tion of young men and women who are want­i­ng to get the edu­ca­tion that is so impor­tant for suc­cess­ful farming.

We’ll announce how to apply for the 2025 Schol­ar­ship this fall and include a link to the appli­ca­tion here!
