Why was First the Seed Foundation established?
To tell the story of the seed industry, because we can’t do it ourselves and if we don’t, someone else will, and we may not like it.
Your sponsorship to the First the Seed Foundation’s initiatives and events is an investment – in your industry and in your business. The benefits you receive from this investment are significant.
Shape the Future – Your support helps build knowledge and understanding to school age children in Agriculture, and encourage them to pursue careers in our industry. This will help maintain the supply of future employees.
Join the Leaders – Companies, as well as individuals, are known by the company they keep. FTSF supporters are associated with the industries leading suppliers and operators.
Receive Recognition – The FTFS publicizes your participation in appropriate communication pieces and it’s Web site. Event sponsors are recognized for their contributions at the event site.
Build Loyalty – FTSF sponsorship not only expands awareness of your products and/or company, but also enhances the value of all you offer in the minds of you customers.
Enhance Public Image – A FTSF sponsorship will highlight your companies role as a benefactor and a participant in creating awareness as to the role of seed in the production of food, feed, fiber and fuel to help keep the our and the global economy running.
