US$4 million endowment will support expansion of safety training for grain handlers and other professional development courses

The society established the GEAPS Foundation in 2011 to collect donations toward a source of ongoing revenue for the expansion and maintenance of GEAPS educational programs.  The society already offers myriad online and in-person training programs emphasizing the safe operation and maintenance of grain elevator and feed mill equipment, but with the additional funds, GEAPS will have more flexibility to expand and update its library, executive director Steve Records said.
