Angus Foundation Raises Over $55,000


The Angus Foundation held its second annual Angus Day of Giving on May 17. The day resulted in over $55,000 to further its mission of supporting Angus youth, education, and research efforts. The event celebrates the day George Grant brought the first Angus bulls to Victoria, Kansas, in 1873. “We were amazed by the overwhelming generosity we saw from the Angus family for our second annual Angus Day of Giving,” says Jaclyn Upperman, the foundation’s executive director. “Our donors made it a day to celebrate the legacy of our breed, but also write the next chapter of the Angus story.” Gifts given on Angus Day support the Angus Fund, which helps support youth leadership through programs like the National Junior Angus Board, Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) Conference, and the Raising the Bar Conference. Supporters also celebrated the momentous day in the breed’s history by sharing stories using #AngusDay on social media.
