There are FOUR different funds to which you can make your contribution:

1. Animal Sciences Undergraduate Student Fund - Code: 20095
listed as "Animal & Avian Sciences Fund"

Contributions to this fund go toward scholarships and educational materials for our undergraduates. Scholarships provide critical support for talented students. Each year, the department awards scholarships to its top incoming Freshmen, but more funds are needed.

2. Animal Sciences Graduate Student Fund - Code: 30611
listed as "Animal & Avian Sciences Department Scholarship Fund"

Presenting their research at national meetings is a crucial part of the development of graduate students toward their degrees and career goals. Contributions to this fund go to support travel to national meetings and educational materials for our graduate students. Each year, more graduate students apply for travel support than the funds available. Donations to this fund will support the training and education of our graduate students.

3. Animal Sciences Campus Farm Fund - Code: 21723
listed as "Animal Sciences Campus Farm Fund"

Contributions to this fund go toward supporting the operation of the Campus Farm, the focal point of our undergraduate program activities. Located immediately across Regents Drive from the Animal Sciences Building, the Campus Farm occupies approximately 4.3 acres of land and houses various livestock and poultry used extensively in teaching laboratories. The costs of operating the farm have climbed to unprecedented levels in recent years. Support through this fund-raising campaign will help care for and feed the animals on the Campus Farm.

4. Campus Farm Revitalization Fund- Code: 22136
listed as "Animal Sciences Campus Farm Fund"

Donations to this fund will support the renovation and revitalization of the Campus Farm as a modern teaching facility for our undergraduate students.
