As State, Federal and Grant funding for Agricultural Research Stations and Extension continue to decrease, we become more reliant upon our local communities to support programs they find valuable. While the central Oregon agricultural community has been overwhelmingly supportive of the work performed at COARC, our need continues.
Your contributions allow COARC to continue to provide important research and education opportunities for central Oregon that are vital to the agricultural community and local economy. In addition, as a direct result of the ongoing financial support from central Oregon, the College has made several recent investments in COARC. These include:
- Contributions toward equipment purchases
- Infrastructure upgrades
- Hiring of two outstanding researchers within the last two years.
As we look to the future, it is the local involvement and your ongoing investment in COARC that will move us to forefront of cutting-edge research. To make a contribution to the COARC Support Fund which is managed by the Oregon State University Foundation, you may use the icon to make an online gift, or you can mail it to our office at: 850 NW Dogwood Lane; Madras, OR 97741.
