Farmers Emergency Fund

The Fund is Temporarily Closed

For four years we distributed a book scholarship to a child or a grandchild of a farmer majoring in agricultural sciences. However, in 2019, we converted the scholarship fund to an emergency farmers fund due to the overwhelming need of small farmers. The fund covers immediate emergency expenses related to the farm operation and daily necessities. We give special preference to aging farmers in need but are open to providing assistance to young farmers as well. As we did with the past scholarship fund, the farmer's fund is dedicated to the Honorable J. Richmond Pearson, the first Black Circuit Judge appointed to the Court in Jefferson County (Birmingham), Alabama. Judge Pearson was one of a group of Black lawyers to represent Martin Luther King Jr. and other protester's jailed during various Civil Rights Movement demonstrations. Judge Pearson's purpose in life was to improve the lives of the under-served, which is in alignment was F.A.R.M.S. mission. Special thanks to the Pearson family. If you are a farmer in need please complete the form. We only provide assistance to small farmer's who operate less than 500 acres, have limited resources and reside in the US.
