Sponsorships

United Ag recognizes the importance of being involved in our local communities and takes pride in being a valued neighbor. In 2014, we sponsored the new El Campo Little League Field. Over the past 10 years, United Ag has donated over $400,000 to various local organizations and causes. We are always here to offer a helping hand to our customers and community.

Youth Fair

Each year United Ag sponsors local youth fairs including but not limited to the Wharton County, Matagorda County, Jackson County, Victoria County, and Colorado County Youth Fairs. United Ag takes pride in supporting exhibitors at the sale of their projects to reward them for their hard work and dedication. Throughout the year, United Ag employees offer their knowledge to the youth as mentors for their fair projects.

Scholarships

In 2018, United Ag rolled out a revamped scholarship process. Scholarship applications were sent to all high schools in our trade area for counselors to distribute. The requirements to receive a scholarship are to be a graduating high school senior, a child/grandchild of a member or employee of United Agricultural Cooperative and turned in the application by the deadline. United Ag was excited to award eight $250 scholarships to the local youth in 2018.
