Ohio Soybean Council Foundation

Background

For many years the Ohio Soybean Council and the soybean checkoff have supported scientific research and educational programs that promote the long-term health of the Ohio Soybean Industry. The Ohio Soybean Council Foundation (OSCF) was established in 2007 to extend these efforts through special initiatives and endowments that advance the application of science and technology to agriculture, today and tomorrow. When OSC licenses and commercializes its new technologies to companies and consumers, the proceeds go toward OSCF’s scholarship fund. It’s just one of the many ways Ohio soybean farmers are giving back to their communities.

The OSCF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a public charity. Contributions to the Ohio Soybean Council Foundation are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
