It's the Final Countdown!
Ivy Tech Community College has recently launched its new Precision Agriculture Equipment Technology program at the Terre Haute, IN campus. We need your help to ensure the long-term success of this program, and by a greater extent, the successful reached future of the agriculture industry.
The Final Forty
Ivy Tech identified a need of $2.5 million to support the Precision Agriculture Equipment Technology facility renovation and program launch. In large part, thanks to a $1.2 million grant awarded by the Economic Development Administration (EDA), we have successfully more than 90% of our goal.
In the final stretch, we are seeking forty (40) gifts of $5,000 each, a.k.a. the Final Forty.
Contributors to this initiative will:
1. Ensure the long-term success of the Precision Agriculture Equipment Technology program and its students.
2. Support the future of the precision agriculture industry.
3. Join the proud group of individuals and businesses – like the USDA, Farm Credit Mid-America, Bane-Welker Equipment and many more – who have supported this program.
All gifts made by December 31, 2018 will be commemorated with a plaque on the donor wall in the Precision Agriculture Center of Excellence lab.
Donor support has allowed the new Precision Agriculture Center of Excellence to begin serving students this fall. U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly remarked at the August 8, 2018 ribbon cutting, “You’ve hit a grand slam on this one.”
Most recently, the program ranked in the top twenty (20) two-year colleges for Precision Agriculture by PrecisionAg.com.
