Interested in sponsoring an event?


FRS works to encourage dialogue about rural issues. We do this by hosting educational events on issues pertaining to rural America, broadband and its applications—smart agriculture, distance education, telemedicine—you name it. 

But hosting events (yes, even educational ones) requires resources. FRS also hosts fundraisers at all major NTCA conferences. A portion of each ticket sold to an FRS fundraiser, and all sponsorships, comes back to us and help us keep the rural voice at the table.

Join FRS at Fall Conference in Denver for our Backyard BBQ!
