National Turkey Federation Foundation

Mission: To help ensure the success of the turkey industry by supporting the recruitment and development of leaders, education and public awareness, international outreach and research.

The National Turkey Federation Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that seeks to enhance the visibility and understanding of the turkey industry while promoting healthy and sustainable eating habits that improve people’s lives.

For nearly 85 years, turkey farmers and processors have counted on the National Turkey Federation (NTF) to act as their advocate. The National Turkey Federation Foundation was proposed in 2015 to support these advocacy efforts and allow expansion of the NTF reach.

“The foundation provides sustainable funding to implement programs. Just like the farmer invests in his soil, we must invest in our own future. We need to work together so we all succeed.”
