Founding Sponsors

The Irrigation Foundation was founded in 1980 with support from 11 charter companies. These visionaries sought to increase the level of education and number of skilled professionals in the irrigation industry. While the Foundation’s name, mission, vision and strategic priorities have evolved over the years, its appreciation for these founders remains unchanged.
