Minnesota FFA Foundation Celebrates National FFA Week

The Minnesota FFA Foundation recognizes National FFA Week as an opportunity for supporters of agricultural education and the FFA to give back and invest in the strength of these programs. Some of these opportunities area as follows.

Give FFA Day is a one day giving campaign promoting Minnesota FFA during National FFA Week and is happening on Feb. 24. Donations will be accepted through the Minnesota FFA Website at www.mnffafoundation.org.

Follow us on Facebook (Minnesota FFA Foundation) on Feb. 24 during Give FFA Day to hear impact stories directly from our local FFA students, Agricultural Education teachers, as well as donors and sponsors to the Minnesota FFA Foundation.

Throughout the day, we’ll be drawing for gifts on the hour. If you’ve placed a donation during that last hour, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a prize! One grand prize will be drawn at the end of the day.

We hope you’ll consider supporting the nearly 13,000 Minnesota FFA members during National FFA Week by giving a donation on February 24th.

All proceeds from Give FFA Day will go directly back to Minnesota FFA Members. Your contribution will go towards supporting Minnesota Agriculture, Food and Natural Resource Science teachers across Minnesota. Your contribution will directly support our teachers and show our appreciation of what they do during some very difficult years of teaching. Throughout the day you’ll hear messaging from FFA members about how their Agriculture Education teacher has impacted their lives.

Other opportunities to donate to the Minnesota FFA Foundation during National FFA Week include:

Legacy Club – Donate $1,000 over one to four years. Donors to the Legacy Club will receive a Minnesota FFA Foundation commissioned giclee print by Bonnie Mohr. Donations will go to strengthen new and existing FFA chapters across Minnesota.

General Donations – Donations to the general fund provide valuable support to scholarships, youth leadership, teacher preparation and State FFA Convention.
