The Wisconsin FFA Foundation has hired John Hromyak as executive director. He is based in the organization’s Madison office but will spend much time traveling the state to collaborate with foundation supporters, Team Ag Ed members, FFA advisors and students.
Hromyak will manage all aspects of the foundation’s donor relationships and financial health, as well as be the main liaison with the board of directors and oversee two employees. He is responsible for maintaining each level of the development cycle with existing and prospective financial partners of the Wisconsin FFA Foundation, in keeping with the National FFA Organization’s mission to make a positive difference in the lives of young people by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
Hromyak brings to the foundation more than six years of nonprofit and fundraising experience, most recently as the annual fund director for Edgewood College in Madison, where he earned a master’s degree in business administration. He is a member of the Sauk Prairie FFA Alumni and University of Wisconsin-Madison Alumni.
“I look forward to joining other agricultural education advocates in their support of Wisconsin FFA,” says Hromyak. “Our partnerships with businesses, organizations and individuals who invest in the future of agriculture are invaluable as we serve more than 20,000 FFA members across the state.”
This year, the Wisconsin FFA Foundation will continue to raise funds to support Wisconsin FFA programs, including direct funding to local chapters and individual members, as well as Team Ag Ed. Hromyak will be spearheading these efforts through direct connections with state and local agricultural industry leaders.
