Online Giving Options Now Available

The Florida State Fair Foundation is built on tradition but tradition doesn’t mean abandoning technology.  With a mission to support agricultural, scientific and educational programs the Florida State Fair Foundation has developed a secure online giving option within it’s website. Donors can even earmark projects near and dear to their hearts.

We will be continuing soliciting support for the many Ag Students who take part in the annual Fair.

Please see our Champion of Champions page for further information and sponsor opportunities.

Sponsors have the opportunity to not only support the many students who come to the Florida State Fair to show their animals but by becoming a Champion of Champions sponsor they may have the ability to donate meat to another of their favorite charities.

“The Champion of Champions program not only expanded my knowledge of livestock production but it also helped prepare me for the real world.  The commitment, consistency and critical thinking skills I implemented in preparing for and participating in the program are skills that have carried over to all aspects of my life.  It is undeniable that the educational experience exhibitors have as a part of the Champion of Champions Program is second to none.  All exhibitors – at all fairs – know the basics about caring for their animals, but the C of C program expands that so they understand the science behind that care and an understanding of livestock production.  I would highly recommend this program to anyone with kids interested in animals.”
