Make a Donation
With a long and proud history of supporting farmers, growers and horticulturalists that goes back to the 1770’s, Members and supporters of the South of England Agricultural Society play a vital role in helping the Society fulfil its charitable objectives.
Their support also makes a valuable contribution to the annual showcase of the best examples of agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry and forestry and helps us develop a better understanding between urban and countryside communities.

Help fund a specific project
Core to the Society’s charitable remit is organising educational events and providing grants, awards, bursaries and scholarships. These grants and awards come out of Society funds and therefore your specific donation to these projects has a significant impact on the learning and development opportunities the Society is able to provide. Your donation will support:
Connect with the countryside
An interactive, hands-on educational day for 2,500 primary school children and teachers that supports the National Curriculum with engaging instruction on food, farming, the countryside and the environment.
Land-based college funding
Every year the Society invites land-based colleges in the region to apply for funding to enrich the curriculum courses they offer. These grants enable study tours and exchange trips within in the UK and overseas and provide valuable learning opportunities for students and their teachers.
The Society’s travel bursaries help individuals or groups to fund international travel to study and learn about farming and agriculture around the world. Over the past 30 years, we have sent over 200 farming couples and groups on international exchange visits and study tours, fostering understanding and forging new relationships with other land-based colleagues.
The Society has are proud to sponsor Nuffield Scholarships and to have helped many talented individuals realise their ambition to be the best they can be. Scholars are chosen because of their potential to provide leadership within the farming industry and rural community and to raise standards as a result of their work.
