The ADGA / Helen Staver Foundation is established under the IRS code 501(c)3 as a charitable foundation.
The purpose is to assist in the advancement of education, educational materials, and research by providing scholarships and other support to individuals and programs.
The need for economic assistance by under-graduate and graduate students for education is great, and the Foundation will provide a level of support.
However, the Foundation is much more than just an organization to offer traditional scholarships. It will work as the charitable arm of ADGA to support dairy goat educational activities and programs that provide educational opportunities and materials.
For example: the Foundation will assist youth through financial support to attend the annual meeting and/or provide funding to assist an individual to attend a judges training conference.
In addition, there is a need for the development and publication of educational materials to benefit the entire dairy goat industry. However, many times teachers and professors who desire to publish and distribute educational materials do not have the funds to accomplish this task. The Foundation can provide some support to accomplish this goal.
