On his death in 2013, Alexander Cherban, a farmer from the Swan Valley region, bequeathed his estate of approximately $900,000 to Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development. Two grant programs were established to support agricultural and economic development. In 2018, the department allocated $450,000 to the Community Foundation of Swan Valley Inc. to create and administer the Cherban Endowment. Remaining funds have been allocated to the Alexander Cherban Agriculture Industry Development Program – ACAIDP.
Application forms are available on the M4HC website www.4h.mb.ca/alexader-cherban-acaidp . The first intake deadline is February 28, 2021.
