SC Farm Bureau is a grassroots, non-profit organization celebrating and supporting family farmers, locally grown food, and our rural lands through legislative advocacy, education, and community outreach.
Our 100,000 member strong alliance includes everyone from foodies and fishermen to lawyers, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and of course, farmers. In addition to celebrating and supporting farmers, food, and rural lands, our members enjoy an array of benefits – from scholarship programs to discounts on everything from insurance, and financial services to cars, office supplies, and tools.
By connecting farmers to the larger community, we cultivate understanding about agriculture’s importance to our local economies. We deepen our collective knowledge of who, where, and how food grows. We empower people to make informed choices. We grow mutually beneficial relationships. And, we ensure the future of the family farms, locally grown food, and the rural South Carolina lands we love.
We are delighted and humbled to receive a Dexter Gordon level $500 sponsorship from the SC Farm Bureau. They believe in ColaJazz’s mission to grow, elevate and bolster the jazz community in and around Columbia, SC through recordings, events, education and providing an organized resource for all things jazz. Their generous $500 sponsorship will help cover the expenses of our educators and students.
ColaJazz is determined to offer lasting opportunities for musicians of all ages, all levels, regardless of socio-economic status, and to develop not only their musicianship, but also their community-mindedness. This anonymous sponsor is being a part of bringing this vision to fruition and supporting our city’s cultural and economic growth.
