Support FFA Members and FFA Chapters in Times of Need

Unexpected events affect FFA members, their families, advisors, chapters and communities from time to time. This page is designed to serve as a starting point for others looking to help in various ways. We also encourage those among us — our student members, advisors, alumni and supporters — to help local FFA chapters during their times of need.

Current FFA members, chapters and communities affected:

Great Plains Flooding

Many states across the Great Plains were hit with a powerful weather event March 14.  Snow, rain and rapid snowmelt caused historic flooding.

The Nebraska FFA Foundation has established a Storm Relief Fund for FFA supporters to provide resources to Nebraska FFA members and chapters in the communities affected by the devastating floods and blizzards. 100 percent of the donations through the Nebraska FFA Foundation will be distributed to Nebraska FFA members and chapters that were affected by the recent floods and blizzards.

Additional ways to help include the Nebraska Farm Bureau Disaster Relief Fund and the Agriculture Disaster Exchange.

Hurricane Michael

Many Floridians are still suffering the long-term effects of Hurricane Michael. If you would like to help a chapter still in need, please contact Florida FFA at 352-378-0060 or via email to be connected with a program and learn how to help.
