Valor Foundation Inc
Valor Foundation is the non-profit wing of Valor Aquaponics with the function of helping to develop more sustainable farming methods and more importantly, help in the conservation of local fish through research & development.
What Exactly Will Valor Foundation Be Doing
The main purpose of the foundation will be to raise funds through donations and grants for the sole purpose of creating more sustainable farming practices. This will be done through the development of propriety technology to aid farmers, especially aquaponics and hydroponic farmers, that will increase vegetable yields and also conserve some of our most valuable resources such as electricity and water.
Our biggest mission will be to be a leader in the conservation of our local gamefish, rainbow trout and especially yellow perch. Both fish are highly overfished in Wisconsin and yellow perch is virtually non-existent in our local waters due to overfishing. The funds that we bring in will be used to purchase high quality equipment to help develop a sustainable breeding program for both fish. Some of the equipment and supplies may include:
Commercial grade filtration equipment
Organic fish feed
Initial breeding stock
The goal will also be to eventually hire a lead biologist to run this program full time. We will partner with Valor Aquaponics and utilize some of their space to run this program. As we grow, we will also look to partner with other programs in Wisconsin with a similar goal.
Will Donations be Tax Exempt?
As of September 20, 2021, any donations made to the Valor Foundation is not tax-deductible as we are currently not a 501(c)3 organization.
However, it is our goal to submit our application within the next 2-3 weeks to obtain this distinguished status.
