AKSARBEN FOUNDATION VALUES
We are driven by the Heartland’s premier network of philanthropic, business and community leaders. We lead by example, serving as role models of Giving Back through our contributions in Education, Agriculture and Community. Leveraging our collective voice of the leading employers makes the Heartland stronger and more prosperous.
Giving back our time, talent and resources is a pillar of the AKSARBEN Foundation. We feel a responsibility to invest in the communities, institutions and people right here in the Heartland. And we couldn’t do it without the countless contributions of our volunteers, from the 19 members of the Women's Ball Committee to the 800+ who make the AKSARBEN Stock Show & Rodeo an annual success.
Preparing today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders has long been a cornerstone of the AKSARBEN Foundation. We fund and guide best practice, needs-based scholarship programs for Heartland youth and sponsor numerous leadership programs, initiatives and competitions that inspire young people to achieve their dreams.
We encourage the highest possible standards of conduct and ethics. The Boards of Governors, Councillors and staff are open and honest with one another, the community and Foundation Scholarship awardees.
We value partnerships and collaborations that enrich our programs and communities. We seek partnerships with institutions that share our values and have a proven track record of success and best practice.
