Our Mission

Our mission is to help Cooperative Extension generate a more visible, measurable, local impact. 

We achieve this through our nationally funded programs made possible by member dollars and cooperative agreements with federal agencies, and through partnering on state, regional, and national initiatives with Cooperative Extension and the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP). We serve all Land Grant Universities, regardless of membership status. 


Membership in the Extension Foundation is available to all Land-grant institutions. Membership grants access to our Impact Collaborative program, and supports the work we do in all of our programs.
