What Some of Our Partners are Saying...
"I found the National Bison Foundation to be a reputable and helpful funding organization to work with, they permitted us to conduct two studies with no outside restraints on the investigators and the scientific process. The funding provided by the Foundation enabled five of my graduate students to gain research experience and their Master of Science degrees and advanced our understanding of the effect of red meat consumption on cardiovascular risk.
The funding provided by the National Bison Foundation permitted characterization of human metabolic response to bison consumption which previously had received little characterization in the scientific literatiure."
"Why should anyone contribute to the National Buffalo Foundation? Speaking for myself and my family, we have personally contributed in excess of $100,000 because this industry has been exceptionally good to us and we wanted to give back some of what we have gained. The NBF is the best vehicle to do this for us, since its vision and goals blend perfectly with ours.
We believe the Foundation can be trusted to do what it states, and has the integrity and sustainability to accomplish its goals. The Foundation needs to grow much larger and faster in order to effectively aid the enhancement of nutrition, disease control, and knowledge of our majestic animal, thus sustaining the legacy of the American Bison."
"The National Buffalo Foundation is a strong partner to the NBA, and to bison producers throughout the country. As a 501(c)3 organization, the NBF has the capacity to generate resources necessary to underwrite important educational and outreach activities. The close partnership between the NBA and NBF has been evident over the past four years in our partnership to reach out ot the next generation of producers through our junior judging program.
The foundation's support of this project has provided us with the ability to offer scholarship funds for the winning participants. More recently, the NBF has stepped forward to generate resources needed to help us address vital herd health issues."
"I believe the National Buffalo Foundation is a valuable asset to the whole bison industry. We are mainly focused on the research and educational part of the foundation. Being a bison producer, it is very important to us that that there is someplace the industry can turn too for help find valuable solutions to problems that affect anyone with bison.
In conjunction with research, education is so very valuable for the future of the industry. Education is a must for the growth of the bison industry. Please support the National Buffalo Foundation."

"Contributions to the Bison Legacy Fund insure our native ancestor's buffalo heritage will be preserved and enhanced through agricultural and cultural attributes that only the American Bison can truly demonstrate."
