Ways to Give
Our Mission...      
Is to provide financial support for the Pennsylvania FFA. When you make a gift to the Foundation, you are investing in the future of agriculture and the young men and women who will be our future agriculture leaders at the local, state and national levels.

Both you and your organization can help make a difference in the lives of these young people by sponsoring a specific program or providing general support for the Pennsylvania FFA. Without your support, the many opportunities, training, development and rewards offered through FFA would not be possible. Your investment will make a continuing difference in the future of the food, fiber and natural resources industry and its leaders.

Monetary & In-kind Donations      
There are as many giving opportunities at the Pennsylvania FFA Foundation as there are avenues of interest for our alumni and friends. Your gift can be designated for programs, activities, scholarships or general operation of the organization.

Endowment Campaign      
Whether you want to make a difference – for a student, a teacher, or a state officer – or challenge others to give, you can show your gratitude for your FFA experience with a gift. Private support involves gifts and grants given to the Pennsylvania FFA Foundation by people – alumni and friends, institutions, corporations, foundations, and organizations - who are committed to helping FFA fulfill its mission. Contributions made to the endowment are invested in a responsible manner. The principal is never spent; however, 5% is utilized each year to support the purpose of the endowment.

Volunteer your Time      
Now, you too, can make a positive impact on members throughout Pennsylvania. A growing number of Alumni, former members, executives, agricultural leaders and professionals volunteer their time and talents to support The PA FFA Foundation. Contact us now to see how you can help!

We are currently in need of volunteers to help at our TWO concessions stands during Farm Show 2019.  To sign up online, visit https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2440961/false#/invitation

Serve on the Foundation Board      
We are currently looking for new board members for the foundation. If you are interested, please contact a current board member for more information.

Applications are now being accepted for anticipated Board of Trustee vacancies.  Please use the below application to apply.  Applications and resumes are due to Sarah Sparks by April 15th each year for review at the annual meeting in May.  Upon approval, terms begin June 1st.  There is a term limit of 3 years for each trustee position. 

Board of Trustee Application

Serve on the Advancement and Advisory Committee      
The Advancement and Advisory Committee is a new committee with the mission to help "grow the FFA Foundation’s outreach to the agriculture, agribusiness and food industry communities to support youth development of leadership, life and career skills." This committee will only meet two times a year.  Contact Sarah Sparks for more information or if you are interested in serving on this newly formed committee.  

Host the State Officer Team      
If you would like to learn more about the PA FFA and how we can become partners, or, if you're a current partner and would like us to learn more about your organization, consider hosting the State Officer (SO) team during our April Business and Industry (B&I) Tour.

If a tour of your organization isn't possible but you would still like to meet with the State Officer team to discuss a current or potential partnership with the PA FFA, consider hosting the Team for dinner in April.  During dinner, you can share information about your organization and learn more about PA FFA from the SO Team. 

For more information and to be added to the April tour schedule, please contact Sarah Sparks.  

Grants      
As a non-profit organization, the Pennsylvania FFA Foundation's mission is 'to secure resources for the future of agriculture education and student leader development" and to increase funding to develop, maintain and enhance the initiatives of the Pennsylvania FFA organization.

One of the ways that we secure funding, is by applying for grants.  We try to find grants on our own, but your help is greatly appreciated.  Does your organization have a grant for which we may qualify?  Did you find a grant that might be of benefit to us?  We would love to hear from you!  Send us as much information as possible about the grant and we'll take it from there!
