GIVE FFA DAY
FFA MEMBERS NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Give FFA Day is as much about sharing your love of FFA as it is about making a gift to support FFA. Are you FFA proud? We want you to share why you loved FFA as a member, why you love FFA as an alumna/us and/or parent and we want you to share why you support FFA. Below are ways you can help spread the word, including social media sharing, talking points and a sample email if you prefer to network that way.
One Day. One FFA. Real Impact.

- If they have never given before, encourage them to donate a jacket to a member who cannot afford their own ($80): FFA.org/giveblue.

I hope by now you have heard about the National FFA Organization’s Give FFA Day. It is an exciting time for the entire FFA community to come together to show our support of FFA members, agricultural educators and the impact they have on our schools and communities across the country. I’ve made my gift as part of Give FFA Day and I hope you will join me in making one, too.
I made mine because of the wonderful experience FFA was at a pivotal time in my life. Without the opportunities FFA program, I would not be who I am today. To make your gift you can visit donate.FFA.org or by calling 1-888-332-2668.
Thank you in advance for supporting leadership and agricultural education through FFA, and providing much needed financial support for members as they work to serve their communities, grow as leaders and pursue careers in agriculture to feed our growing population.
One Day. One FFA. Real Impact. Happy Give FFA Day!
