The Angus Foundation provides a mechanism for members and other beef industry stakeholders to support youth development, education and research programs conducted by Angus Australia.
These programs are designed to encourage and assist the involvement of young people in the Australian beef industry, to provide professional development opportunities for young beef breeders, and to assist in conducting research, development and educational programs for the benefit of Angus breeders and the wider Australian beef industry.
The Foundation is governed by a committee of the Angus Australia Board, with advice from the Angus Foundation Consultative Committee including members and other industry participants with an interest in assisting with the Foundation’s activities.
To date, the Angus Foundation has provided funds to support Angus Australia’s Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries program. In the future, where funds permit, it is proposed that the Foundation will expand its activities to support education and research projects.
All donors and sponsors of the Angus Foundation will be acknowledges in the annual Angus Foundation Newsletter, under one of the following partner categories based on the value of their contribution over the previous 2-year period:
In order to continue its support for youth, education and research activities, the Angus Foundation requires ongoing funding. Angus Australia plans to conduct a variety of annual activities to raise funds for the Foundation. In addition, we would also appreciate direct financial support from members and other interested individuals and organisations.
