The Canadian Angus Foundation has committed to “Building a Strong Foundation.” This is an initiative that will allow members to get involved and provide building blocks for the Foundation to grow and find success with future projects. These include Angus Roots, which provides scholarship awards to six Juniors at Showdown each year; the opportunity to immortalize highly respected Angus breed builders or loved ones with a picture hung on the Wall of Honour at Angus Central; and The Breeder's Choice, which permanently recognizes a standout animal.
Help Support the Canadian Angus Foundation
There are various ways that you can support the Foundation. It is with your help and care that the Foundation is able to offer different programs to Canadian Angus Association members from coast to coast, both breeders and supporters of the Canadian Angus cause who donate and purchase in support of our Foundation and our national youth.
You can support the Canadian Angus Foundation throughout the year through donations to scholarships and awards such as the Outstanding Young Angus Breeder and the Robert C. McHaffie Junior Ambassador (and others), as well as travel bursaries and junior shows. This support also includes providing junior and young breeders the opportunity to learn and grow in areas of leadership, marketing, technology, and Angus production as well as opportunities for non-livestock youth to learn about our industry. Funding is also provided to assist with speakers and events targeted at member education.
