The 2012 Individual Giving Council has issued a challenge to FFA and agricultural education supporters everywhere – give to FFA and we will match your gift.
Through individual giving, the council, made up of eight volunteers, has collectively contributed more than $312,000 to FFA. Over the next three years, that money will help to create a new matching-gift program called the Leadership Matching Challenge.
Council member Elin D. Miller said, “FFA continues to be blessed with wonderful corporate sponsors. But now, more than ever, FFA needs our individual support, a chance to give back to the organization that gave us each individually so much!”
For each new gift of any amount or increase in prior giving that allows your total gift to meet or exceed $1,000, your new gift or increase amount will be matched dollar for dollar by Leadership Matching Challenge funds up to $100,000.
This is the first time in the 85-year history of FFA that we have had a group of individuals come together, create a pool of donations and offer that pool as matching fund incentives to encourage others as individuals to give to FFA.
