Agri Beef makes every effort to direct its contributions where they have the greatest impact while addressing the most critical needs. We receive far more requests than there is money available and acknowledge that we are unable to fund every worthy endeavor. As a general rule*, Agri Beef will not make contributions to:

  • Churches or religious organizations for purpose of religious advocacy
  • Capital campaigns/capital expenditures and endowment campaigns
  • Lobbying/political organizations for political purposes 
  • Athletic teams, events, or sponsorship unless as part of the employee match program
  • Disease related causes or research
  • Funding for individuals unrelated to agribusiness, including transportation and travel expenses
  • Organizations or programs that are identified more with specific groups of people rather than the general public including individuals or individual needs
  • Advertising, publications, films or television production or programming
  • Unrestricted operating funds
  • Organizations without 501(c)(3) status

*These are merely guidelines. Agri Beef Co. reserves the sole and absolute discretion to determine recipients of its charitable contributions. Agri Beef Co. may exclude or include organizations as Agri Beef determines appropriate. 

*Note all product donations are still subject to venue policy.
