With the largest membership in 31 years – nearly 19,500 members – the Wisconsin Association of FFA continues to thrive in numbers and impact the future of agriculture. The financial support of the Wisconsin FFA Foundation has also seen steady growth, because of its generous donors that rally each and every year to ensure the lifelong stability of the organization.
"We are immensely grateful for the many donors that give during the holiday season, and all year round," says Sara Schoenborn, executive director of the Wisconsin FFA Foundation. "They are truly the ones sustaining Wisconsin FFA and providing essential opportunities to all members preparing for agricultural careers."
The Wisconsin FFA Foundation Annual Fund welcomes any size donation from individuals and/or companies wishing to support the FFA's overall goals and values. "I love the FFA Vision, which states: Students whose lives are impacted by FFA and agricultural education will achieve academic and personal growth, strengthen American agriculture and provide leadership to build healthy local communities, a strong nation and a sustainable world," adds Schoenborn. "It is why we do what we do, and why our donors continue to give."
