Cutline: Pavers on the walkway at the American Angus Association® headquarters are available to be personally engraved.
Make your mark in “Building an Angus Legacy!”
Angus Foundation offers granite paver at the American Angus Association® headquarters.
It’s not too late to leave a lasting mark on the American Angus Association®. By donating to “Building an Angus Legacy” cattlemen, alumni of the junior program and others can have a paver in front of the Association headquarters in Saint Joseph, Missouri, personally engraved.
An unrestricted, tax-deductible donation of $300 to the Angus Foundation secures a paver.
All the proceeds from the “Building an Angus Legacy!” campaign support the Angus Foundation and its mission to advance Angus education, youth and research programs.
In 2013, the front walkway of the Association was remodeled and each of the new 6-by-12-inch granite pavers became available for recognition. Previous donors have listed their names or their farm’s name. Others have made a donation in memory of a loved one or the name of their group or state association.
Orders will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. To submit an order and payment, contact the Angus Foundation at 816-383-5100. The Foundation is accepting orders via mail to 3201 Frederick Ave., Saint Joseph, MO 64506 or online at www.angusfoundation.org.
Foundation staff are also available to assist you in completing your order form.
“The Angus Foundation would like to thank the members of the Angus family who have already donated to “Building an Angus Legacy” and looks forward to furthering participation until every paver on the Association walkway is engraved,” said Jaclyn Boester, Angus Foundation executive director.
