About Us

What is the Agricultural Family Fund? (Legality)

The Agricultural Family Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  We are a legally-licensed non-profit organization under the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3). Donors can deduct contributions that they make to us under IRC Section 170.  We are also qualified to receive  tax-deductible bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522

 

Who Are We?

        Welcome to the Agricultural Family Fund! We are a locally-run, non-profit organization dedicated to empowering agricultural families within our community. Established in 2023 by a group of Stockdale high school students and in collaboration with Dignity Health, AFF provides easy access health screenings to farmworkers, combating the often unknown and untreated common health issues in farmworker communities throughout the Central Valley

How Do We Help?

The AFF’s goal is to foster equitable access to health screenings, to help aid in the early detection and prevention of common health issues prevalent in farmworker communities. AFF partners with Kern County growers to provide farmworkers health services while they’re at work, to help bridge the gap in transportation, and the time necessary to seek healthcare. In fewer than 5 minutes and with the prick of a finger, medical professionals are able to administer four different tests. AFF checks blood pressure, blood sugar, hemoglobin, and cholesterol levels.

Areas that would be eligible for the screening would be any farms within Kern County, some of the cities that we hope to work in include Arvin, Bakersfield, Delano, Lamont, McFarland, Shafter, Wasco, and many more.  For possible business inquiries on making this a reality, please email admin@agriculturalfamilyfund.org.
