Honoring the Late Jon Brandt

A Special Purpose Fund within the AAEA Trust has been established to honor Dr. Jon Brandt’s many contributions to the profession through leadership of the AAEA, the C-FARE Board, NAAEA, Agricultural and Resource Economics at NC State, and service to the agricultural community at large.

Donations to the Jon Brandt Special Purpose Fund will  fund the Jon Brandt Public Policy Forum; an annual event which will be national in scope and visibility to share economic research with private and public sector decision makers on issues important to agriculture, food, rural, environmental, food and related societal issues. The Forum will include one or more speakers and funds will support speaker travel, event promotion and publicity, information dissemination in print or electronic format, and other event logistics. 

For more information and to donate to the Jon Brandt Special Purpose fund, please visit the Jon Brandt Special Purpose Fund website.
