Recognizing the depth of research at Montana State University must expand to meet current and future crop science challenges, the Montana Grains Foundation, MSU President Waded Cruzado, and the MSU Alumni Foundation have embarked on a $5 million mission to perpetually endow the first Chair in the 120 year history of the College of Agriculture.

The new Montana Plant Sciences Chair will be guided by an advisory council with representatives from Montana’s crop production industry who will focus on the most compelling needs of grain producers in this state. The endowment will support an individual of distinction who will teach, direct advanced research, and attract research funding for the department and will provide programming support for much-needed lab equipment, research assistants and operations.

Join your friends and neighbors—lead the effort to establish the first endowed chair for the College of Agriculture at Montana State. Ways to give include gifts in cash, immediate or spread out over 3–5 years; gifts of assets or real estate; gifts of appreciated stock or securities; gifts of retirement plan assets; gifts in life insurance.
