The Season of Giving

Seasons Greetings! 

For more than 100 years UF/IFAS Extension has provided educational outreach and has helped millions of Floridians by tapping the latest information from the research engines of the University of Florida and converting it into practical knowledge we use every day. As we look forward to the many challenges facing us over the next 100 years, we invite you to support those County Extension Agents that provide Solutions for Your Life.

Why Give?

Because You Care — No matter your passion, UF/IFAS County Extension Agents bring you information on the topic. Our County Agents, of all program areas, need your support.

It’s a Sound Investment —Your investment will allow UF/IFAS County Extension Agents to continue their professional development in order to serve our northwest Florida communities, families, youth, local agriculture and natural resource industries and businesses. Professional development benefits our nation, our state, our families, and friends.

It Feels Right — When you give to UF/IFAS Northwest District Professional Development Fund, you are supporting your local UF/IFAS County Extension Agents to achieve the Extension mission.

The Multiplier Effect — Every gift, large and small, matters. Your gift to UF/IFAS Extension Northwest District Professional Development Fund adds to the gifts of other donors, empowering you to change the world, your state, and your community far more than you could alone.

Through your gift to the Northwest District Professional Development Fund you help support scholarships for County Extension Agents to pursue professional development opportunities such as: State and National Conferences, Seminars, Programmatic Training and Professional Development Sabbaticals.

Please consider supporting this fund so that County Extension Agents can continue their professional development and serving our northwest Florida communities.

Leave Behind Materials when meeting with Elected Officials

There’s an old saying in Washington: “You’re only as effective as the paper you leave behind.” Translated into beyond-the-beltway- speak, this means that a successful lobbyist (professional or amateur) must write and leave behind documents that are clear, concise, and memorable. This best practices guide provides some recommendations about how to write advocacy documents that get read and not discarded.

Check out all the Best Practice Guides at http://www.land-grant.org/ but as your
team begins to form here’s a quick look at “what to leave behind” http://www.land-grant.org/docs/guides/LBM.pdf
