MINOT, North Dakota - Aggie Foundation is donating $2,300 to Full STEAM Ahead,
which will go towards new robots for their competitive teams.
Allison Auch, Executive Director at Full STEAM Ahead, expressed her excitement for
this opportunity and the challenges she has faced.
“Trying to piece together sponsors is hard sometimes, so with a big donor [Aggie
Foundation] like that, it just makes it possible for all of our teams.” Allison said.
“The robots are used year round, which is huge.”
This donation specifically will help Full STEAM Ahead by providing robots for their
Robotics Program in their competitions, both nationally and internationally.
The Aggie Foundation supports a broad spectrum of local organizations in fulfilling their missions in North Dakota.
“Education should be continually supported,” said Terry Peterson, Aggie Foundation
Board President. “We believe in what Allison and her team are doing at Full STEAM
Ahead and we’re grateful to be able to donate to their cause for the community and
improving educational outreach.”
Full STEAM Ahead is a nonprofit organization in Minot, ND that was formed in 2017.
Full STEAM Ahead is an umbrella organization that helped meld youth arts with
science, technology, engineering and math.
The Aggie Foundation was established in 2012 by a group of friends from Velva, ND.
The Foundation initially supported their mission of charitable giving via a modest, yearly scholarship provided to a Senior from Velva who excelled in Biology. They began to help raise funds for citizens in need, schools, youth sports, and local organizations or groups doing good things in Velva and the surrounding communities. Their expansion as a broad grant-provider and community partner allows them to support organizations across North Dakota working with community leaders to identify which organizations are in need of economic assistance.
