Challenge encourages Angus members to support foundation

Farm Forum

Progress is evident in the Angus Foundation, just in simply looking at the faces of its supporters and those individuals who benefit from that support. Donors are truly the reason why the Angus Foundation can help Angus youth attend college, cattle producers learn how to be more progressive on their operations and researchers uncover useful information to make the Angus breed even better.

Together, with its “Faces of Progress,” the Angus Foundation is adding value to the Angus breed every day. By participating in the Angus Foundation’s annual fund, appropriately themed “Faces of Progress,” you can continue to enhance the Angus Foundation’s efforts.

In this season of giving, Angus breeder and commercial producer Mark Milano of Milano Land & Cattle Company, LLC, Tehachapi, Calif., will generously make available to the Angus Foundation a $10,000 matching gift in support of the “Faces of Progress” annual fund drive to raise unrestricted funds for youth, education and research. This matching fund offer will expire Jan. 31, 2013.

To participate and help the Angus Foundation receive these matching funds, before Jan. 31, to the Angus Foundation. All unrestricted outright cash gifts made in response to the “Faces of Progress” will count toward this matching offer. Upon achieving the $10,000 benchmark, the Angus Foundation will receive the matching funds from Milano Land & Cattle Company, LLC, to move the Foundation significantly closer to the $50,000 annual fund goal this year.
