West Virginia University Extension and the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design are preparing students – on campus and around the state – for future success. Gifts from Farm Credit of the Virginias will expand financial literacy in West Virginia, while enhancing undergraduate research opportunities and innovation in agriculture.
The $67,000 gift to WVU Extension will create the Farm Credit of the Virginias Financial Literacy Fund. These funds will be used to support WVU Extension’s financial literacy outreach and education to youths and adults throughout the state.
Farm Credit of the Virginias also gifted the Davis College $67,500 to establish the Farm Credit of the Virginias Student Farm Research & Entrepreneurship Fund. These funds will be used to provide opportunities for student innovation in areas such as sustainable farming, agricultural technology, urban agriculture, food waste reduction, plant genetics, agricultural education and policy.
