Angus Foundation Recognizes Lifetime Donors

Visit to view a full list of donors.


At the core of the Angus Foundation there is a myriad of supporters who believe wholeheartedly in advancing the next generation. These donors are the strength of the Angus Foundation who provide inspiration and remind youth to reach for the sky.

To say thank you to the generous donors who have, over the lifetime of the Angus Foundation, contributed $25,000 or more, the Angus Foundation this year launched the lifetime donors recognition program. 

More than 80 individuals, families and companies were applauded for their commitment during the annual Donor Recognition Event held Nov. 16 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville, Ky., in conjunction with the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE).

“With each passing year of the Angus Foundation, Angus breeders and allied industry leaders recognize the increasing value of the Foundation and take ownership of the organization’s future through their charitable giving,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “For all of their charitable support, the Angus Foundation conveys its heartfelt gratitude to all who have supported and will in the future.”

These contributions have enabled the Foundation to provide even more support for the future of the Angus breed. In fact, in fiscal year 2013 alone, Angus Foundation revenue eclipsed $2 million – a first for the organization. These accumulative totals include outright cash gifts, sale-proceed amounts of gift-in-kind items for both donors and buyers, and those planned giving commitments available for public disclosure.

The Angus Foundation extends its sincere appreciation to the following families and operations.
