The Esperance Ag Fund has been established to make an indelible difference. Through donations from the local agriculture sector, we can provide funding to projects that make a positive impact. This is all about farmers supporting the Esperance community, investing in opportunities that make Esperance a place anyone would want to live and thrive. The Fund will deliver an ongoing impact and be a legacy we can all be very proud of.
