Our 2019 Move to the Stockyards

In this section of LeaderCare, we will be updating you weekly on what is going on with our relocation to the Stockyards Historic District.
Did you know that you can endow a specific Youth World Show class forever by making a $45,000 gift to our Youth World Show Endowment? The base scholarship for every World Championship Class is $1,300, which distributes $500 in scholarship earnings for first place, $400 for second place, $250 for third place and $150 for a randomly drawn name in each class. So while your gift goes into the big endowment, the interest on the gift can be earmarked for the four scholarships for a specific class on a first-come, first serve basis. It’s a great way to memorialize a loved one, a favorite horse or ranch in perpetuity. Interested in endowments for more than one class? Just multiple each class by $45,000. Perfect for a 2017 tax writeoff. For more information, contact APHF Director Laura Jesberg or make a gift via our Capital Campaign Gift Form. (link is http://apha.com/foundation/capital-campaign/donation-form/)
