Geared to Give - Kubota Tractor Corporation and the Farmer Veteran Coalition

Powering and Empowering Our Nation’s Veterans

Kubota’s flagship philanthropic program, “Geared to Give” in partnership with the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC), recognizes current and past U.S. military servicemembers for their continued service to their communities through farming, many of whom need the gift of Kubota equipment to help them achieve self-sufficiency and take their farming operation to the next level.

“It truly is the American dream for many – and certainly those returning or starting a new career in farming – to become a self-sufficient farmer, with the right mix of equipment, drive and determination to make tending to the land your life’s work,” said Alex Woods, Kubota senior vice president of sales operations, supply chain and parts, and an Army National Guard veteran. “Kubota is proud to work with FVC to recognize our nation’s veterans to power and empower them with the right equipment to help them achieve their dreams.”

Kubota’s “Geared to Give” program has provided equipment and grants to farmer veterans since 2015 through FVC’s Fellowship Fund, which matches veterans’ needs with donated resources to help them further their agriculture careers. 

Each year, farmer veterans can apply to the FVC Fellowship Fund to be considered for donated Kubota equipment through the “Geared to Give” program. For more information on FVC’s application process, visit
