Farmer Veteran Coalition has received a donation of $100,000 split between Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, and its Tractor Supply Company Foundation.

The donation comes as part of the retailer’s launch of its Hometown Heroes program and its $1 million in donations to charity organizations supporting our nation’s military service members, Veterans and first responders.

“Tractor Supply’s longstanding support for those who serve our country and communities is rooted in our Mission and Values,” said Marti Skold-Jordan, manager of the Tractor Supply Company Foundation. “We are so inspired by Farmer Veteran Coalition’s meaningful work with farmers and military Veterans. It’s an honor for us to contribute to the incredible impact Farmer Veteran Coalition has had in our communities and across the nation.”

The donation will go to the Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund, which provides direct assistance to Veterans who are in their beginning years as farmers and ranchers.

“Agricultural start-ups can require the acquisition of substantial tools and equipment to become operational, so the continued support Tractor Supply provides is very much appreciated by our members and the communities they feed,” said FVC Executive Director Jeanette Lombardo. “TSC is not only a longtime supporter of the FVC, but daily they walk alongside our members as they grow and expand their operations. They have become an integral partner and assisting us in achieving our mission throughout the country.”
