Anchored In The Communities We Serve
One of the seven principles which guide all cooperative organizations is giving back to the community. At Heritage Cooperative, our commitment to that principle runs deep. Here are a few of the organizations we support with our time, volunteer efforts and financial support.
Ohio FFA Foundation
Heritage Cooperative is a Silver Sponsor to the Ohio FFA Foundation. The mission of Ohio FFA is to “make a positive difference in the lives of young people by enhancing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agriculture education.”
Fueling The Cure
In 2009, three Ohio-based cooperatives founded this program to raise money for breast cancer research. The idea was to give $1 for every delivery stop of bulk propane. Tanker trucks were wrapped in pink with bold messaging promoting “Fueling the Cure.” This year the program donated $190,464. The program has surpassed more than a million dollars in lifetime donations for cancer research.
County Fair Support
Heritage Cooperative continues to be a significant contributor to 4-H and FFA Junior Fairs throughout the state. Our mission is to help as many young people as possible by partnering with others to purchase their 4-H and FFA livestock projects.
Ohio Farm Bureau
As professionals in the agriculture industry, we believe in the mission of the Ohio Farm Bureau and the benefits they provide. In fact, one benefit we offer to all our employees is a free membership to the farm bureau. We also provide opportunities for employees to participate in OFB programs like Young Ag Professionals and support other programs and events.
