Ag One Foundation

47th Annual Ag Boosters BBQ

Collage from 2023

For 47 years the Ag Boosters BBQ has helped raise over $1 million to support the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology at Fresno State and California Women for Agriculture (CWA). Every year, thanks to many generous and loyal supporters like you, Ag One and CWA have been able to help deserving students attain their college education (Ag One) and advocate for agriculture to our elected officials (CWA). We are grateful to the agricultural community who has invested to ensure there are well educated leaders today and in the future.

Fresno State is a special place to train the future leaders in agriculture. CWA is hard at work advocating on behalf of all of agriculture. These things don’t happen without you.

We invite you to join the sponsors that have already committed their support. Please consider supporting as a Harvest Sponsor or making a contribution (see below).   

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to thanking you in person. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the committee members or Ag One staff if you have questions.
