University of Kentucky Research Endowment Fund

Give the Gift of Grain

Growers and Industry May Contribute to UK Research Endowment Fund


KySGGA has established an endowment fund at the University of Kentucky (UK) to ensure the advancement of production research. The fund has received just over $50,000 to date from grower and private company contributions and matching funds from KySGGA.


Wheat and small grain production in Kentucky has made tremendous strides the past few decades due to the talent and dedication of UK’s research staff and their cooperation with farmers and professionals, and KySGGA leadership wants to see that success continue for decades to come.


Individual growers and businesses may donate to the fund, and KySGGA will match the sum of donations up to $50,000. In addition to cash, growers and businesses may make an above the line deductible donation of grain.


Donations of any size should be made directly to the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture for the Kentucky Small Grains Growers Association Endowment Fund.
