Supporting Funds
Gifts to the following three funds allow the Department to make immediate use of the donation.

Partnering Pathway Extension Fund
Your generous contribution to the Partnering Pathway Extension Fund will permit extension specialists to better serve off-campus clientele through a variety of activities. Virtually all in-state travel is now financed by our extension specialists’ entrepreneurship in garnering competitive grants. But grant dollars can only be used for designated projects. Your donation will be available for immediate use to support in-state travel and other extension activities not funded on competitive grants. At year’s end you will receive a detailed report on the activities and clientele supported through your generosity.

Graduate Enrichment Fund
Your generous contribution to the Graduate Enrichment Fund will provide graduate students the opportunity to participate in internships, field trips, travel to conferences and professional meetings, as well as to underwrite research projects which would otherwise not be possible. Your donation will be available for immediate use to support enrichment activities. At year’s end you will receive a detailed report on the activities and students supported through your generosity.

Undergraduate Enrichment Fund
Your generous contribution to the Undergraduate Enrichment fund will provide invaluable opportunities for undergraduates to participate in internships, field trips, travel to conferences and professional meetings, as well as to underwrite on-campus educational events. Your donation will be available for immediate use to support enrichment activities. At year’s end you will receive a detailed report on the activities and students supported through your generosity.

Endowments and Endowed Fellowships and Scholarships
Donations to these funds are used to enlarge the principal and generate more interest.

Eric Monke Memorial Fellowship
The Eric Monke Memorial Fellowship honors the memory of Professor Eric Monke who succumbed in an untimely way to multiple schlerosis. Eric was dedicated to inspiring generations of graduate students to dedicate their professional lives to solving economic development problems. Proceeds from this endowment support graduate students studying economic development.

Jimmye and Helen Hillman Endowment
The Jimmye and Helen Hillman Endowment fosters international exchange of scholars by supporting both department faculty travel abroad and foreign visitors’ travel to Arizona. Among other things, endowment funds have supported attendance at international meetings and conferences as well as sabbatical leaves. Your generous contribution to the Jimmye and Helen Hillman Endowment will augment the proceeds used for stimulating international scholarly exchange.

Henderson Endowment
Mary Henderson, a frequent visitor to department seminars in the Hillman years, dedicated part of her estate to supporting domestic undergraduate and graduate students through scholarships. Your generous contribution to the Henderson Endowment will help grow the proceeds for supporting domestic students.

Cardon Endowment
As a former professor, respected businessman, and dean of the College of Agriculture, Bartley P. Cardon improved the lives of students, colleagues, business partners, and faculty throughout Arizona. In honor of his legendary accomplishments, a group of those whose lives he bettered contributed to this endowment, which supports the Bartley P. Cardon Endowed Chair in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. Holders of the Cardon Chair conduct world-class research, impart a passion for agriculture through their teaching, and deliver important extension results to clientele throughout Arizona. Your generous contribution will allow the proceeds of the Cardon Chair to grow in support of the Cardon Endowed Chair.
