Funding Philosophy – Grants, Contracts, Partnerships

Fulfilling commitments with Extension's existing partners is our first priority.
New resources provided by contracts, grants, gifts, and user fees are pursued and accepted when:

  1. The proposed programs fit with Extension's vision, mission, and priorities;
  2. The values and reputation of the funding organization are consistent with Extension's values and reputation;
  3. There is no expectation of compromising Extension's values;
  4. There is adequate funding to support the programs;
  5. Existing commitments are not compromised; and
  6. Expertise to support the program is available.
