The Florida Specialty Crop Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded to support research as well as educational and philanthropic activities to benefit Florida’s fruit and vegetable producers. Since its inception in 1991, the Foundation has raised more than $7.7 million through public support, government grants and special events.
Ongoing projects include FFVA’s Emerging Leader Development Program, research partnerships with the University of Florida and USDA-ARS, the Florida Agricultural Labor Seminar, the George F. Sorn Scholarship, the Redlands Christian Migrant Association, and the EPA Spring Regulatory Tour.
We need ongoing financial support from the industry to:
- Contribute to the sustainability of Florida specialty crop production (including current research on bacterial spot, late blight, farm labor contractor training, groundnut ringspot virus, and more)
- Provide grower outreach and enhance the lives of young people pursuing careers in agriculture (including the Emerging Leader Development Program and the Ag Labor Seminar)
- Improve the lives of children of specialty crop farmworkers (including several projects with RCMA)
