About CFA

The Colorado Foundation for Agriculture (CFA), a 501(c)(3) not for profit educational corporation, was established in 1991 to promote agricultural literacy in Colorado. CFA is governed by a nine-member board of directors that administers the Agriculture in the Classroom program in Colorado. Projects and materials developed by CFA are made available at no or minimal cost to Colorado educators and others interested in educating about agriculture.

This grassroots organization derives its funding from grants and donations.
