Connect | Inspire | Preserve
The NASDA Foundation is the only educational and research organization that directly serves the nation's state departments of agriculture. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to advance agriculture to shape a changing world.
We work with states to:
- Connect farmers to new markets
- Inspire change across the supply chain
- Preserve the environment, while maintaining agricultural viability
State departments of agriculture staff can submit project ideas to the NASDA Foundation. Download the proposal form here. Email the completed form to Dr. Lisa Benson at email@example.com. If you have questions, feel free to contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
