Take Part in a Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity and Support the Angus Foundation in “Building an Angus legacy!”
Leave your legacy behind in the Angus breed at the American Angus Association’s headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo., all while supporting your Angus Foundation and its youth, education and research programs. “Building an Angus legacy!” is the fundraising opportunity available only for a limited time, March 1–July 1, 2013.
The American Angus Association front entrance walkway will be completely remodeled with black granite and red brick to match the historic building. Until July 1, 2013, for a tax-deductible unrestricted donation of $250, $500 or $2,500 to “Building an Angus legacy!” you will be recognized on a beautiful personalized engraved granite paver.
Recognition on a 6 X 12-inch (in.) granite paver is available for a $250 donation. For $500, you can be recognized on a 12 X 12-in. paver. These two sizes will be placed in the ground at the entrance. Twenty-four 8 X 16-in. granite pavers will be laid within a brick wall leading up to the Association door. Recognition on these pavers is available at $2,500.
A limited number of each size of granite paver will be available. Submit your order form and payment to the Angus Foundation as soon as possible to ensure availability of your preference. Orders will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Only after the donation is received will engraving begin on the paver. The Angus Foundation is accepting orders via mail and online at www.angusfoundation.org. Net proceeds of the project will benefit activities supported Angus Foundation.
“‘Building an Angus legacy!’ provides Angus breeders, current and past, a very unique and meaningful way to leave their legacy in the Angus breed at the American Angus Association headquarters in Saint Joseph for visitors to enjoy viewing for years to come,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “It is our hope you will want a beautiful engraved granite paver to ensure that your place in the Angus breed’s history is forever etched, literally in granite stone, at your Association.”
Jenkins adds that another reward of participating in this project is helping the Angus Foundation financially through the generous charitable support to “Building an Angus legacy!”
Only text will be allowed on the granite pavers, and each paver size has line and character limits to follow. However, in addition to the granite pavers, there will be the opportunity to be recognized on one of four granite planters, which will be displayed prominently at the remodeled entrance. To be recognized on a planter, with the option to include your brand or logo, make sure to place your bids on the first of the four planters, which will be offered at www.angustradingpost.com March 1-20, 2013. The four planters will be the only opportunities to have a brand or logo engraved into the granite.
What better way to be a part of Angus history than to have your name, your farm or ranch name or the name of a loved one or important cow or bull in your herd permanently and beautifully displayed outside the Association headquarters. The Angus Foundation looks forward to your participation in making this project come to life. Feel free to visit www.angusfoundation.org for more information, or call the Foundation at 816-383-5100.
