Building the Legacy Sale has become
Canadian Angus Foundation’s main fundraiser focus and has been very
successful in generating resources to further our mission.
Angus Foundation functions to preserve and expand the Angus breed for
future generations through education, youth development, scientific and
market research, and historical preservation and restoration. The Canadian
Angus Foundation was incorporated in 1993 and is the charitable arm of the
Canadian Angus Association.
The vision of the Building the
Legacy concept is to allow the Foundation to build monetary resources. The
Foundation uses its funds to provide opportunities for our youth, young
breeders and membership to grow in the areas of leadership, marketing, networking,
animal husbandry, genetic improvement and to learn about developing tools
to enhance Angus production. The vision also includes the importance of
preserving Angus history. By fostering these areas we can ensure our Angus
history is not lost and will keep Angus as the breed of choice for the
commercial beef sector and end users for years to come.
Our vision is being realized and
because of generous donors we can support initiatives, scholarships, travel
bursaries and learning opportunities. Through benevolent giving of donated
livestock, semen, embryos, items and experiences, and the purchasing of the
auction offerings, we at the Foundation have been able to put together a
great suite of opportunities for our Angus membership.
