The CHS Foundation is funded by charitable gifts from CHS.  We are committed to making a lasting, measurable impact on rural America and agriculture industry through investments that develop ag leaders for lifelong success. Together with our partners, we are igniting innovation and driving excellence in agriculture education, cultivating high-impact programs for rural youth and accelerating potential for careers in agriculture. 

Our work to develop ag leaders for life is accomplished by: 
• Advancing innovation in cooperative system education by incorporating new rigor into existing programs and developing new programs that are relevant and engaging to a new generation of leaders. 
• Cultivating opportunities through university partnerships to support students who are studying in the field of agriculture with program support, mini-grants and scholarships. 
• Growing high-impact rural youth leadership programs to engage students and prepare to make meaningful contributions to the ag industry. 
• Accelerating potential for careers in ag by helping teachers receive better training to prepare their students for lifelong success in agriculture.
