Support the Central Kentucky Farms Discretionary Fund

After 46 years of service, Dave Smith is retiring from the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. From his days as a student worker to his current role as farm superintendent, Dave and his crew have assisted in hundreds of research projects. Our faculty and students appreciate and depend upon the field staff to complete tasks related to their research activities.

There is a need to build resources that would allow supervisors to provide other types of day to day support for the farm research team. The fund will be used to purchase items such as Gatorade during the summer and for recognition of the farm team's service and research support. Our long-range goal for this fund is to assist with the renovation of space for an employee break room where field staff can go to eat lunch, take breaks, and store personal items.

You can support the Central Kentucky Farms Discretionary Fund on this page. If you'd like to give to another fund that is not listed, please use the search box in the upper right of this page and type in the desired fund to make your gift. We are grateful for your support!
