Your support matters

Over the long term we aim to build an endowment of $12 million to safeguard CIMMYT's wheat training programs in Mexico and, ultimately, to expand training programs to other crops and regions.  Our funding goal over the shorter term is to provide critical annual support for CIMMYT's wheat training programs, scholarships to allow students to participate in them, travel support for volunteer instructors, and modest operational funding for the funding and key CIMMYT support staff.  The all-volunteer Board of Directors is committed to the mission and to maximizing the effectiveness of funding for program needs.


The Borlaug Training Foundation is classified as 501(c)(3) and all donations are considered tax deductible.
