Giving to Agriculture and Natural Resources

Virginia Cooperative Extension has a rich history of making a positive impact on the people of Virginia. That history includes a long tradition of support from volunteers, friends, and cooperators who have helped make Extension a success in making a difference.

Agriculture and natural resources (ANR) programs help sustain the profitability of agricultural and forestry production and enhance and protect the quality of our land and water resources. We help the agriculture industry use the most current technology and management practices to develop strong businesses that prosper in today's economy. We deliver programs that help put research-based knowledge to work for Virginia's agriculture industry. This capacity to adapt and respond to changing local needs — to provide solutions — is what makes Extension a valued and relevant entity to the people of Virginia.

Private dollars can make the difference between excellent programs and exceptional programs, and the investment of friends of Extension is critical to our success.

Opportunities include endowing faculty positions such as chairs, professorships, and fellowships; establishing ongoing support for individual programs and initiatives; contributing to already established endowments; and more.
