Give Dad a Piece of Angus History this Father’s Day

Honor Dad by ordering a granite paver in his name this Father’s Day while simultaneously supporting Angus Foundation programs.


Father’s Day is a great time to celebrate all fathers and their impact in our lives. The Angus Foundation has a great way to honor Dad and his legacy through the “Building an Angus legacy!” project.


The American Angus Association® front entrance walkway will be completely remodeled with black granite and red brick to match the historic building. Until July 15, 2013, for a tax-deductible unrestricted donation of $250, $500 or $2,500 to “Building an Angus legacy!” you can recognize Dad 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 recognize Dad 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. After July 15, if the Angus Foundation opens a second phase for order submission, prices will go up to include on-site engraving cost.


A limited number of each size of granite paver will be available, and orders are coming in quickly. Submit your order 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. Only text will be allowed on the granite pavers, and each paver size has line and character limits to follow. The Angus Foundation is accepting orders via mail and online at Net proceeds of the project will benefit activities supported by the Angus Foundation.


The Angus Foundation looks forward to your participation in making this project come to life. Feel free to visit for more information, or call the Foundation at 816-383-5100. Foundation staff is also available to assist you in completing your order form based on the line and character limits.


The Angus Foundation was established in 1980 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization to support Angus education, youth and research. To learn more about the Angus Foundation and the programs it supports, log on to or call 816-383-5100.
