The Washington Wheat Foundation was organized in 1988 to link wheat growers and related businesses as partners to support public information and research programs for the Washington Association of Wheat Growers. The Foundation works to economically advance the wheat industry by building support for programs and activities that increase public awareness of farming’s responsible approach to the essential production of our safe food supply, and the development of new knowledge about environmentally sound farming practices. The Foundation is operated exclusively for educational and scientific purposes as a section 501 C (3) funding organization.
