Our Mission

In 1979, several faculty, alumni and friends of the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology had a million-dollar idea -- to start a foundation that would benefit, promote and support the college and its programs. The supporters set out to raise $1 million in permanent funds. Today, the Ag One Foundation has raised nearly $26.7 million in endowed funds which are invested with the Fresno State Foundation.

Over the years, donors, board members and volunteers have made it possible to award some 4,800 students with over $7.6 million in scholarships and program support. For the 2021-22 academic year, Ag One will provide more than $950,000 to deserving students and programs.

Ag One Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3).  Gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  Our tax ID number is 94-2685442.
