Donating to Greene County Extension
Gifts from individual donors support MU Extension's educational programs in Greene County. Primarily, we receive cash donations by check or online with a credit card and the non-cash donation of vehicles.
Donate an Old Vehicle, Boat or Farm Equipment
Cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, ATVs, boats, boat motors and farm equipment can be donated to the Greene County Extension Council. When contacting the local extension office with a donation be prepared to give the following: name, address and telephone for the owner and detailed information about the type of item being donated. If it is a vehicle we will need VIN, make, model, year, color and mileage. We will make arrangements for the item to be picked up (free towing). When the vehicle is picked up the owner must sign over the title. Our office will send you a receipt for the value of the vehicle based on what it sells for at auction. As of 2015 we have received and disposed of over 10 vehicle donations and all proceeds benefit Greene County Extension programs. | Email David Burton with donation details or call the office at (417) 881-8909.
