Invitation to invest

Now is the time to invest — Kansas State University has an inspiring opportunity. To help the world’s ability to feed two billion more people by 2050. To contribute to a Kansas economy that thrives. To optimize agriculture for the highest levels of efficiency and yield. The sky’s the limit.

With experts across campus working alongside industry professionals, this project will revolutionize K-State’s research approach. We’ll unite brilliant minds from many disciplines to discover world-changing solutions. By working in spaces created for maximum collaboration, the output will be bigger, better and bolder.

Global Center for Food and Grain Innovation & Agronomy Research and Innovation Center

Support the Agronomy Research and Innovation Center, Global Center for Grain and Food Innovation, or Call Hall and Weber Hall Enhancements to help drive new discovery, knowledge and deployment of innovation.

Bilbrey Family Event Center

Support for the event center with a competition arena will help offer space for active learning at K-State, engage students and reach out to Kansas animal industry stakeholders. The area will host rodeos, equine events, livestock shows and more.

What people are saying
This project will not only move Kansas State University forward, it will also provide a welcome boost to the state’s ag industry. We’re very proud of Kansas agriculture, and if this project can prepare more future members and industry leaders while providing innovative solutions to make our cattle and grain production more efficient and sustainable, we all win. Farmers, ranchers and cattle feeders in Kansas should jump at the opportunity to invest in the future of Kansas agriculture… This is the best opportunity that we have right now to do so!
