For more than 80 years, Agriculture Financial Service Corporation (AFSC) has played an integral role in supporting and making a difference in Alberta communities.
AFSC sees the value of community every day – in the fields helping out a neighbour, in town at the local coffee shop or in the barns of a regional 4-H show. That is why AFSC is committed to enhancing the communities where our clients and employees work, live and play.
Our Sponsorship & Community Initiatives
AFSC’s Sponsorship & Community Initiatives program is based on the guiding principle that building strong communities throughout Alberta – where our employees and our clients live and work – is vital to our organization’s success.
Our investment in community is part of being a trusted community partner, a good neighbour and an employer of choice. It binds us together with our clients and employees and strengthens our province.
AFSC believes in directing our sponsorship and community initiative efforts through support of organizations and initiatives that generate clear and demonstrable value to the communities in which we operate, live and work.
AFSC’s investments (sponsorships, donations or in-kind donations) align with the following focus areas:
- Education and Outreach
- Community Well-Being
Additionally, all investments recognize AFSC’s vision, mission and values, strategic priorities and provide benefit to rural Albertans.
Lastly, whenever possible, AFSC looks to build synergies and connections back to its core business and product objectives, ultimately helping to serve and protect our clients’ businesses and grow our agriculture community. Some of AFSC’s key products include: AgriStability, Western Livestock Price Insurance Program (WLPIP), Agribusiness Loan Program, and the Next Generation Loan Program.
AFSC accepts applications year round, but all applications must be received a minimum of 60 days or two months prior to the start of the first day of the initiative.
Once you click the Submit button, you will be taken to a confirmation page indicating that your application has been submitted for review. Applicants will be notified of application status (declined or accepted) within approximately three weeks of the application being received.
Note: Available funding will be distributed to compliant applications on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Before you apply, please take the time to review our funding guidelines and ensure your request meets one of our focus areas. Eligibility according to AFSC’s funding guidelines/criteria does not guarantee support, but it’s the first step in determining the value and alignment of a potential opportunity.
