Extension lives at the intersection of scientifically sound research and the needs of Minnesota’s families, organizations and communities. Demand for Extension programs is rising, along with the cost of producing that programming, and traditional sources of financial support are no longer sufficient. Your investment in Extension helps ensure that as circumstances change, Extension continues to help Minnesotans adapt and thrive.
