Central Alberta Gives


Olds College


The Werklund Agriculture Institute is a four component hub for leadership, education, and applied research in Smart Agriculture. It will provide access to land and facilities for research and entrepreneurs, be a thought leader in innovation and sustainability, mentor students through access to  business leaders in year-long agriculture production, and will give students the opportunity to be “hands on” in business management and retail production.

We have a fundraising goal of twelve million dollars, which will be met with a four million dollar donation from David Werklund and Susan Norman. That means that for every $3.00 you donate, they will match with another $1.00.

On November 28th, we hope you will consider taking part in our GivingTuesday campaign and help Olds College establish this sustainable and innovative Smart Agriculture program so we can continue to provide outstanding Agriculture based education for our students, and support the sustainability of the Canadian Agriculture industry.

As a “Thank You”, we will be entering everyone who donates on November 28th into a draw for an Olds College hoodie! Winner will be announced on November 30th.Thank you for your continued dedication and support of Olds College, our programs, and most importantly, our students.
