Message from the Associate Dean and Extension Director  

The basic funding that supports the entire Cooperative Extension System (CES) in Arizona is derived from five principle sources and described proportionately in the following figure that describes the organization’s funding in Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18).
The detailed CES funding distribution for FY18 operations among these five basic sources are provided in the following table.  
Note:  Discretionary = Designated in this case.

One important point to draw from this information is that 86% of CES funding comes from a combination of two sources, state and federal funding and the full array of funding from sponsored projects.  Sponsored projects includes all of the grants and contracts that are secured from external sources to support research and education projects.  Faculty and staff in the CES are writing all of the proposals in competitive arenas that result in these funds referred to as “sponsored projects”.

The state and federal allocations, 42% of the total CES funding, provides the foundation and core financial support for the organization.  The entrepreneurial and creative efforts of CES faculty and staff is reflected in the  approximately $17M in FY18 coming from sponsored projects which represents 44% of the total budget and fuels the excellent CES programs across the entire state and organization.

The CES is a strong organization driven by the tremendous commitment and motivation found among the outstanding people who work hard to deliver on our mission every day.
