The Compeer Financial Fund for Rural America, the corporate giving program of Compeer Financial, is offering a total of $180,000 in grants to eligible county fairs throughout its 144-county territory. Applications for the County Fair Facility Upgrade Grant Program are due by March 31.
“County fairs enhance rural communities by bringing people of all ages together to learn and experience agriculture,” says John Monson, chair of Compeer Financial’s Fund for Rural America. “We provide this grant to ensure that fairs give the best possible impression to fair-goers as they experience this time-honored tradition.”
The mission of the County Fair Facility Upgrade Program is to support rural areas in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin by funding county fair organizations as they repair fairground, 4-H and livestock buildings, livestock judging arenas and more. Now in the second year of the program, Compeer Financial supported 64 fairs in 2018 with $180,000 in grants, impacting the lives of more than 1.9 million fair organizers, participants and attendees.
Each fairgound is eligible for up to $3,000 in funding. Fairs that received the grant in 2018 will not be considered in 2019.
