What Your Donation Supports

By supporting our work with a gift today, you help us provide farmers with crops and practices better-suited to feeding a hungry world, without further compromising the health of the very ecosphere that sustains us all.

Your gifts go to work immediately, and they do more than just keep the lights on. They:

    • Purchase microscopes and slides to examine plant tissue, and solar-powered vehicles to get from one field to another
    • Keep water re-circulating through the ebb and flow benches in our greenhouse
    • Create “winter” in our vernalization chamber to accelerate the flowering of plants in our breeding programs
    • Supply ventilation and climate-controlled storage in spaces used to process and analyze harvested materials
    • Support postdoctoral researchers carrying out experiments at collaborating institutions
    • Pay the salaries of the full-time scientists, technicians, and support staff at our Salina, Kansas, headquarters
    • Bring talented undergraduate interns to help with summertime planting and harvest

Your dollars do all of these things, and much, much more.
