CAES Alumni Association

Alumni and friends of agriculture can communicate with the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and serve the college through the CAES Alumni Association. All graduates of the college are members of the alumni association. There are no dues to be a member.

Meet the members of the CAES Alumni Association board and executive committee. You can also learn more about the committees you can join as a member of the alumni association.

The CAES Alumni Association Eterna Endowed Fund

In 1973, a group of individuals set out to create a unique organization that would provide financial assistance to the CAES Alumni Association to help carry out the alumni association's many projects. The Eterna Fund is an endowed fund; all contributions are carefully invested and only the income from the fund is spent. For more than 40 years, the Eterna Fund has provided more than $200,000 in scholarships to entering freshmen and transferring juniors into CAES.

Give to the CAES Alumni Association Eterna Endowed Fund

Note: Your contribution can be designated to support a specific purpose important to you or can be left unrestricted to be used where the need is greatest. All situations are unique, and you are encouraged to consult your financial adviser regarding IRS regulations and your opportunities to give.
