Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) is pleased that long-time member benefit partner, Ford Motor Company, has announced a limited time offer to double eligible members’ Bonus Cash savings.  Members eligible for the extra $500 Bonus Cash include military, retirees, recent veterans, or first responders. 

All eligible Farm Bureau members currently receive $500 Bonus Cash on the purchase or lease of an eligible new 2017/2018 Ford vehicle.  Ford recognized that many Farm Bureau members are proud to serve their country and their communities through military and first responder service and wanted to recognize that extra contribution by allowing these private offers to be combined.  

Shortly after Henry Ford began his enterprise in 1903 he said, “A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.”  He was referring to an obligation he felt companies had to give back to their communities, and this military and first responder appreciation bonus cash is just one of the ways Ford Motor Company seeks to show appreciation for military members and first responders.    

“Iowa Farm Bureau strives to provide our members with valuable member benefits for the farm and for use in their daily lives,” says IFBF President Craig Hill.  “Numerous Farm Bureau members have taken advantage of the member benefit savings with Ford Motor Company, and we are excited to announce this special offer for those who have served our country in the military and the first responders who are integral members of our communities.”

The Ford Military Appreciation program is offered to active and retired military and family members, including National Guard, Reservists on active duty and members of the Delayed Entry/Enlistment Program (DEP).

The Ford First Responder Appreciation program is offered to police, fire fighters, EMTs, paramedics, and 911 dispatchers. 

New members are eligible 30 days after joining Iowa Farm Bureau.  Farm Bureau members need to present their proof of eligible membership by downloading a certificate from  The additional $500 Bonus Cash offer for military and first responders expires November 30, 2017.  Some exclusions apply, so see your local dealer for details.
