Growing Strong Raising Money For Erie County Agricultural Society Scholarships


The Erie County Agricultural Society has partnered with WBBZ-TV to produce a 2 hour broadcast to raise money for the Erie County Agricultural Society Scholarship Fund. It is scheduled to air April 11th from 8-10pm on both WBBZ-TV Buffalo and ‘The Erie County Fair’ Facebook Live. The broadcast will feature past scholarship recipients, an interview with CEO and Fair Manager, Jessica Underberg, a background of the program and more, as we raise funds for the scholarship fund.

Since the inception of the scholarship program in the 1950's, the Erie County Agricultural Society has had the privilege of impacting lives of young people in the WNY community. One way we have been able to give back is by awarding scholarships to eligible young adults. Annually, over $20,000 in scholarships have been awarded.


Through the generosity of donations like yours, the Erie County Agricultural Society (the “Society”) will be able to continue its long history of awarding scholarships to eligible young men and women. The Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit membership corporation. All or part of your contribution may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please check with your tax advisor.

We ask for your help in continuing to give back to our community by donating to the scholarship fund.
There are a few ways you can help:
• You can donate online
• Download and mail in the donation form with your gift
• Purchase a cash drawing ticket for a chance to win up to $3,000 (limited tickets available).

Your support creates scholarships which allow young adults to achieve their goals. Your support changes lives.
