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.
Give FFA Day is a one-day giving campaign promoting Minnesota FFA during National FFA Week and is happening on February 19, 2019. Donations will be accepted through the Minnesota FFA website at www.mnffafoundation.org.
Follow the Minnesota FFA Foundation on facebook on Tuesday, February 19, during Give FFA Day to hear impact stories directly from local FFA students, agricultural education teachers, as well as donors and sponsors to the Minnesota FFA Foundation.
Donors who give $25 or more during Give FFA Day will receive a Forever Blue lapel pin, and donors who give $100 or more will receive a personalized Minnesota FFA Bluetooth speaker. Consider supporting the nearly 11,000 Minnesota FFA members during National FFA Week by giving a donation on February 19.
All proceeds from Give FFA Day support your local FFA members. Your contribution will go towards the Blue Jacket – Bright Futures program and sponsor an FFA jacket for a Minnesota member.
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 support core areas of FFA scholarships, youth leadership, teacher preparation and the Minnesota State FFA Convention.
