    Playing Ways to Help Thank You Sponsors The work we do would not be possible without our generous sponsors You help make a difference for students and teachers across California Thank you Learn how you can join the effort or continue to provide support on our Ways to Help page Sponsor Feature California Farm Bureau Federation California Farm Bureau Federation CFBF is proud to be a 30 year sponsor and original founder of the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom CFATIC CFBF has provided annual donations to Ag in the Classroom since before it was first formed as a 501 c 3 non profit organization in 1986 The idea behind CFAITC started with a request to CFBF in 1980 when the San Francisco Unified School District asked for assistance with a farm field trip Six years later teachers and administrators still sought assistance in educating urban students about agriculture and farmers and ranchers recognized the importance of providing that support It was then that CFBF established CFAITC Agricultural education to urban and suburban students and teachers is even more critical today than it was when AITC was first established With less than half of one percent of California s 39 million residents directly involved in agricultural production it is imperative that those of us involved in production agriculture continue to support agricultural awareness in our State s classrooms says Paul Wenger president of the California Farm Bureau Federation The relationship is mutually beneficial as CFAITC recognizes the value in CFBF s partnership CFBF provides more than financial support says Judy Culbertson executive director of CFAITC We are lucky to partner with Farm Bureau and share its agricultural expertise with teachers students and classrooms across the state Leasing space in the Farm Bureau building helps us stay up to date
