Who We Are



Farm Credit Foundations is a collaboration of Farm Credit employers who have come together to create centralized HR shared services focused on meeting their own human capital needs. We are a federally chartered instrumentality of the United States, charted by the Farm Credit Administration, operating independently since January 1, 2012.

Our participating Farm Credit organizations span 41 states and employ over 10,000 employees. We provide competitive and economic value by acting as one employer. The vision for Foundations is to achieve economies of scale and strategic advantage by:

  • Designing and offering a competitive employee benefits package for attraction and retention of talent,
  • Pooling plan assets in the investment markets to gain economic muscle and lower cost,
  • Leveraging new-generation HR information technology system, which individual organizations could not afford on their own
  • Ensuring expertise and effective operations in a quickly changing benefits environment to manage compliance risk, and
  • Providing support and information on compensation strategy and HR compliance
Farm Credit Foundations employers access HR industry thought leadership and best practices through the expertise and breadth of experience of Foundations team members located in St. Paul, MN.  Employers capture the efficiencies and effectiveness of shared benefits design, administration, asset management, payroll services, and related HR offerings. Through Foundations, their organizations are able to stay ahead of an increasingly complex and competitive workforce management environment.
