Our mission is to help Cooperative Extension generate a more visible, measurable, local impact.
We achieve this through our nationally funded programs made possible by member dollars and cooperative agreements with federal agencies, and through partnering on state, regional, and national initiatives with Cooperative Extension and the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP). We serve all Land Grant Universities, regardless of membership status.
Membership in the Extension Foundation is available to all Land Grant Institutions. Membership grants access to our Impact Collaborative program, and supports the work we do in all of our programs.
National Funded Programs
This program serves all Land Grant Universities in the United States and is in partnership with Oklahoma State University. Funding is made possible through a cooperative agreement with USDA-NIFA, grant no. 2020-41595-30123
Through New Technologies for Ag Extension (NTAE), Cooperative Extension programs have the opportunity to work with the Extension Foundation for one year to receive support services including partnership development, market research, professional development, leadership development, publishing support, and more. Our next nomination for 2021-2022 projects will begin in Spring 2021. Please check back for updates.
