All donations received for Minnesota will be allocated for 2021 scholarship awards in Minnesota.
Targeting Excellence is recognized by the IRS as a tax exempt 501(c)(3)(FEIN 46-1072291). All donations submitted through this form are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. All donors are encouraged to consult their personal tax advisor prior to making a donation.
Targeting Excellence was founded in 2013 with the vision, “To unite agribusinesses, production systems, and institutions of higher education in a common cause – to ensure the world’s food supply by providing scholarships for students committed to food animal agriculture.”
The 8th Annual Minnesota Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic will be held at Caribou Gun Club in Le Sueur, MN (Spring 2021). Targeting Excellence formed a Minnesota committee in 2013 making it the 2nd state to join the organization. The first Minnesota fundraiser was held in 2013.
Targeting Excellence awarded $22,000 to students in Minnesota this year from the funds raised last year. Help us increase the scholarship awards available for next year by making a one time or recurring donation today.
Now more than ever, we’re so grateful for the community that has funded, volunteered, celebrated, and advocated for Targeting Excellence through the years. Our mission of supporting students in food animal agriculture has not stopped in spite of the challenges presented by Covid-19. That’s why we’re asking you to help us fund the 2021 scholarships by becoming a donor today.
Our committee is actively planning to host our annual Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic in the spring if conditions allow. However, making a donation today is the safest, simplest, and most effective way to support our food animal ag students as we adapt to ever-changing circumstances due to COVID-19.
While all of us are facing great challenges at this time, we hope that you can find some peace knowing that you relieved some of the financial stress of being a student through your generosity.
On behalf of all of us at Targeting Excellence, thank you for being a part of our community. We wish you and your family health, safety, and happiness and want you to know that together, we can overcome all things.
