Hereford Youth Foundation of America, Sierra Ranches Launch Foundation 1 Club

September 7, 2017

The Hereford Youth Foundation of America and Tim and Kara Coleman, Sierra Ranches, Modesto, Calif., are teaming up to launch the HYFA Foundation 1 Club at the Western Treasures Vol. 1 Sale Monday, Oct. 9, at 1 p.m.

The Foundation 1 Club is a group of breeders who donate 1% of their sale gross to HYFA to benefit leadership, scholarship and educational experiences for Hereford youth.

“Kara and I have always been passionate about junior programs, so we started looking at what we could do as Sierra Ranches to help foster the junior program and support it in the future,” Coleman said. “I was reflecting last spring on the good programs that take place throughout the year for HYFA and thought ‘what would 1% of a sale be?’ It started to sound right. Whether it is an online sale, bull sale or production sale, there is no amount too big or small to donate back to HYFA.”

Through HYFA, Hereford youth have the opportunity to gain invaluable leadership skills that enable them to become self-directing, educated leaders in today’s world.

“The Hereford Youth Foundation of America is fortunate to have such a gracious network of donors,” said Amy Cowan, American Hereford Association director of youth activities and foundation. “The Foundation 1 Club sets the stage for amazing growth for our leadership and educational programs. I can’t thank Sierra ranches and the Coleman Family enough for having the foresight to be the inaugural members of this prestigious club and committing 1% of their sale proceeds this fall to HYFA. Our future is in good hands thanks to donors like Sierra Ranches.”
