The Building the Legacy Sale is a fundraising auction for the Canadian Angus Foundation. This sale has become the main fundraising focus and has been very successful in generating resources to further our mission.
The Canadian Angus Foundation functions to preserve and expand the Angus breed for future generations through education, youth development, scientific and market research, and historical preservation and restoration. The Canadian Angus Foundation was incorporated in 1993 and is the charitable arm of the Canadian Angus Association.
The vision of the Building the Legacy concept is to allow the Foundation to build monetarily. With the prosperity of the Foundation, it in turn uses the funds to provide opportunities for our youth, young breeders and membership to grow in the areas of leadership, marketing, networking, husbandry, genetic improvement and to learn about developing tools to enhance Angus production. The vision also includes the importance of preserving Angus history. By fostering these areas we can ensure our Angus history is not lost and we would keep Angus as the breed of choice for the commercial beef sector and end users for years to come.
The vision is being realized and because of generous donors we can support initiatives, scholarships, travel bursaries and learning opportunities. Through benevolent giving of donated livestock, semen, embryos, items and experiences, and the purchasing of the auction offerings, we at the Foundation have been able to put together a great suite of opportunities for our Angus membership.
