Jan. 27, 2014, Port Elgin, Ont. – A new agricultural education charity recently raised more than $44,000 for scholarships for high school students entering a post-secondary agriculture or agri-business program.
The Canadian Agri-Business Education Foundation (CABEF) was publicly launched at the Best of CAMA (Canadian Agri-Marketing Association) Awards held in Quebec City in November. Live and silent auctions were held raising $44,910 to go towards scholarships for high school students intent on pursuing a post-secondary education in agriculture or agri-business.
The foundation obtained registered charitable status earlier this year. To date, CABEF has raised more than $100,000 to invest in five annual $2,500 scholarships.
