Ag One Foundation

Graduates Jonathan Moules and Joshua Heupel with Ag One Board President Roger Isom

Our Mission

In 1979, several faculty, alumni and friends of the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology had a million-dollar idea -- to start a foundation that would benefit, promote and support the college and its programs. The supporters set out to raise $1 million in permanent funds. Today, the Ag One Foundation has raised more than $27 million in endowed funds which are invested with the Fresno State Foundation.

Over the years, donors, board members and volunteers have made it possible to award some 5,250 students with over $9.4 million in scholarships and program support. For the 2023-24 academic year, Ag One has provided more than $920,000 to deserving students and programs.

Ag One Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3).  Gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  Our tax ID number is 94-2685442.

Edwin Genasci passed away November 4.  He was a 1969 Fresno State dairy science graduate.  He was proud of his Bulldog roots and was always an advocate for his alma mater.  In 2016, Ag One honored him and his cousins, Bill and Jim Genasci, at the Stanislaus County Alumni and Friends dinner when their Genasci Dairy celebrated 100 years.  He has been a very active member of the Stanislaus Alumni and Friends committee since its inception in 2004. He was proud of his AGR ties.  His leadership and determination is what brought the National Brown Swiss Association convention to Fresno and the Fresno State campus this summer. Obituary available here.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests gifts may be made in his memory to support deserving students and programs in the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology.
