Give Direct

For over 60 years, Boone County Extension has served its community by offering programs that help its citizens create a better life. These programs include but are not limited to: agriculture, health and nutrition, community and leadership development, natural resources, business development, family finances, horticulture, even housing and energy management. Our current ongoing programs include 4-H, Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners.

Over the past several years, our funding has been dramatically reduced. The MCES Endowment is designed to provide program support for all Boone County Extension Specialists by way of office support, supplies and equipment, so they can continue delivering quality education. Now you can give directly to this endowment by following the MCES Endowment link below.

The Boone County Extension office is housed on the former Schotte Farm, a gift of the late Frank Graham. Now you can give directly to the Frank Graham Endowment, which will go towards the upkeep of the building and grounds.
