Making a difference in your life
Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more. We take programs to schools, gardens, community centers, and other places.
Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.
The Riley County Extension Educational Fund at the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation offers the opportunity to support current programs and to provide a legacy that will support Riley County Extension for years to come. Gifts may be large or small, one-time or ongoing, and may be directed to a specific program area. All gifts to the fund are tax deductible.
Your generosity allows Extension programs to continue to improve the quality of life for your family, friends and neighbors. The Riley County Extension Education Fund will gladly accept gifts in honor and memory of your loved ones, and can direct your contributions to the support of your favorite educational program.
