Each year the Southern region Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) program provides sponsorship support for conferences, field days, workshops and other events organized by universities, community organizations, NGOs, mentor farmers, and other ag professionals across the Southern region. The events can be regional events, as well as national events taking place in the Southern region whose main purpose is to further sustainable agriculture for the benefit of farmers, NGOs, community organizations, researchers, and other ag professionals.
Such sponsorship seeks to support increased awareness of the SARE program, provides sustainable ag educational resources to farmers, ranchers and ag professionals across the region, provides networking opportunities, and builds partnerships between SSARE and the organizations we support.
Sponsorship support can cover general event organizing activities, such as meals, speaker fees, event registration and event travel for those in need, field demonstrations, workshop sessions, and farm tours. Sponsorships do not cover facility rentals, equipment rentals or purchases, the rental or purchase of supplies (tables, chairs, tents, paper products are examples), and giveaway items, specifically monetary donations, such as gift certificates and gift cards.
If your university or organization is interested in SSARE sponsorship support, please choose ONE of the options below that best fits your request. Only one sponsorship request per institution/organization will be considered per fiscal year.
If you have any questions regarding our sponsorship support guidelines, please contact Candace Pollock-Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-412-4786.
