Give to FST

war memorial pylons

The Food Science and Technology Department has been a major contributor both nationally and internationally in ensuring a safe, nutritious and abundant food supply through our teaching, research and extension programs.  Unfortunately reductions in public college support and rising costs have made it more challenging for us to maintain our competitiveness with other institutions and improve our highly regarded programs and initiatives.

This is where you can help by making a private gift that can enhance student learning experiences and explore new opportunities for our faculty, staff and students.  Your contribution will support many areas including academic excellence, student scholarships, facility improvements, new programs and the recruitment of top researchers and educators.

Making a gift pledge is easy to do using the university’s online gift process. Just click the "Give to FST" button at the top of this page, and then select "College of Agriculture and Life Sciences" and "Food Science & Technology Department Annual Fund" from the drop-down menus on the online gift page. Please see the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences How to Make a Gift page for more information.

On behalf of the department, thank you to all of our benefactors who have supported the FST department in the past and to those of you considering a pledge of support.
