Administrative History
Local cooperatives and petroleum agencies provided financial support to community activities as early as 1937, when the Maple Leaf petroleum agency in Cereal, Alberta provided uniforms with hand-made patches for the Cereal Maple Leafs, a women's baseball team. As UFA Co-op prospered in the late 1980s, it began to allocate increasing budgetary amounts to its charitable program, known as "Community Investment". The program was administered by the Member Relations department. Delegates were also allocated budgets to support charitable causes of their choosing. Among other things, UFA Co-op supported scholarships for agriculture students, 4-H and other programs for rural youth, livestock shows and competitions, farm safety day camps for children, rodeo and chuckwagon organizations and competitors, horse teams that participated in local parades, children's and youths' sports teams in small communities, and medical research.
