"I give in memory of my late husband. He always gave FarmHouse credit for setting future goals in his life and how FarmHouse helped him achieve those goals. He was a farm boy from rural Missouri and the first in his family to attend college. Jerr would have been so pleased with the Leadership Institute as well as seeing the growth of FarmHouse)"

Widow of Gerald Coorts (MO ’51)

"My gift was nothing special. It was simply an appreciation acknowledgement of the FarmHouse brothers before me. Their investments significantly enriched my life, as well as my son’s life when he was a member. I’m happy to give and be of service to the future generations of FarmHouse men."

— Craig Hertel (NE ’75)

 

"I get great joy out of, and am committed to, things that are life-changing to people. To me, FarmHouse is one of the best life-changing institutions out there. I believe FarmHouse is more than an idea-it's an aspirational way to live. It gave me structure and made me more productive. I didn't realize until much later all that FarmHouse had done for me. I gave to the Campaign because I wanted to pay it forward to ensure FarmHouse is there to do this for future generations."

— Randy Linville (KS '73)
CEO of Agspring

"I know first-hand the impact FarmHouse educational programs can have on undergraduate members and hope my donation will be able to provide those same opportunities to today’s undergraduates. The programs FarmHouse provided were essential in shaping my undergraduate experience and I know, through my time at the Mobile RLC, that the programs we continue to provide are beneficial to all those in attendance."

— Judson Ricks (TR ’07)

 

"Today, society struggles for leadership. I am a firm believer that those from rural backgrounds can provide the necessary guidance that the world needs when they are developed by superior organizations like FarmHouse Fraternity."

"I don’t believe my positive outlook on life is due to some inherent quality within me. I don’t think I’m unique either. Since the accident, I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people, many of them with disabilities worse than mine. They still have a great outlook on life and such character. Often, when I meet these people, especially the young men, I think, ‘he would make a great FarmHouse man. That’s why I started this fund."

— Vince Ulstad (ND ’79)
