Clays for a Cause
Clays for a Cause is a charitable sporting clays program produced and underwritten by Kentucky Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company. Every dollar raised from the event—whether through sponsorships, donations or participant entry fees—is given directly to a local or regional charity specified by the Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance Foundation.
Our charitable focus? With help from some very well-aligned partners, we are striving to support their efforts to curb food insecurity in our state. Did you know that one out of every six Kentuckians faces problems with hunger? That means that on any given day, more than 700,000 people in the Commonwealth do not know where they will find their next meal. Keeping that need in mind, KFB Insurance has used the money raised over the past two years through Clays for a Cause to help increase awareness of hunger issues right here in our state and assist those best equipped to aid our neighbors in need.

KFB Insurance made a historic donation in April 2020 in lieu of the company’s second annual Clays for a Cause fundraising event, which was canceled due to social distancing guidelines. The record-setting $500,000 donation was comprised of the KFB Insurance Foundation’s $125,000 contribution (derived from Clays for a Cause sponsor and participant commitments) and then enhanced by an additional $375,000 from the Insurance Company. Funds were split between three local non-profit organizations – Feeding Kentucky, Glean Kentucky and Kentucky Hunters for the Hungry.
On April 23, 2019, Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance hosted its inaugural Clays for a Cause event, raising $115,950 to fight hunger and food insecurity in Kentucky. The event, which took place at Elk Creek Hunt Club in Owenton, Ky., was attended by 191 participants and supported by 37 sponsoring companies. All proceeds were donated to local hunger-relief efforts as part of the Department of Agriculture’s Kentucky Hunger Initiative.
