Oklahoma Angus Association Contributes $50,000 to National Junior Angus Show Endowment FundTue, 31 Jul 2018 16:18:05 CDT
Seven states, including Oklahoma, presented generous donations to the Angus Foundation during the 2018 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) closing ceremonies.
“It was truly a humbling moment to see so many state associations pitch in and invest in Angus youth at the 50th National Junior Angus Show,” said Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “Our initial fundraising goal for this visionary initiative is $2 million. These states encourage other state Angus associations and individuals to join them in contributing to this Fund helping to secure a prosperous future for the National Junior Angus Show the next 50 years and beyond.”
The funds will be permanently endowed in the NJAS Endowment Fund. Available annual investment earnings from the Fund will be provided to state Angus associations hosting the NJAS in the future.
“Watching the NJAS Endowment Fund donations during the NJAS Closing Ceremonies was an amazing sight,” said Jaclyn Upperman, American Angus Association Events and Education director. “The seven states worked hard to make such generous donations, and their efforts will shine through at future National Junior Angus Shows.”
