Legacy Sustaining Fund – continuing to sustain the Angus Legacy

Campaign encourages breeders to continue the Angus legacy through an annual or monthly gift.

One hundred fifty years ago, in 1873, a Scottish, Angus breeder named George Grant came to America with the dream to build a legacy — a legacy that went on to make a lasting impression on the beef industry. Grant, a forward-thinker, brought the first Angus bulls to the prairies of Victoria, Kansas. The legacy is still being built 150 years later through the Angus Foundation.

To honor and celebrate the breed’s history and future and continue the legacy of the Angus breed, the Angus Foundation is establishing the campaign “Legacy Sustaining Fund”. The campaign asks every member to give $150 to the Angus Foundation, earmarked to the Angus Fund, to build unrestricted donations for Angus programs. The gift can be an annual or monthly reoccurring gift to spread out your support.

“Through the “Legacy Sustaining Fund”, the goal is to reach all American Angus Association® members, big or small. With $150, we can continue building a legacy with the Angus Foundation’s mission of advancing education, youth, and research,” says Jaclyn Boester, executive director of the Angus Foundation. “Whether it’s an annual donation or a monthly occurrence, members of any size can contribute a lasting legacy to the future of the Angus breed.”

To be a part of “Legacy Sustaining Fund,” members can donate through the Angus Foundation website at, or pledge support during events like Angus Convention, Cattlemen’s Congress, National Western Stock Show or the National Junior Angus Show.

Your gift will help us sustain the unrestricted Angus Fund to help increase the Angus Foundation’s mission and broaden its impact for the Angus breed. Make your gift today and your gift will truly be limitless – in all the possibilities it provides for the Angus Legacy!
