Beyond its place in Official Dress, an FFA corduroy jacket is an article of faith, honor and pride.
The jacket unifies members in a long-standing tradition and reminds them that they are part of something bigger than themselves. Let’s give every member the chance to be part of the tradition.
With the help of generous donations, National FFA can gift jackets to members who would not otherwise be able to own their own. An $80 gift will provide a member with a jacket and tie or scarf.
National FFA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). Your donation is tax deductible; you will receive an email receipt for tax purposes.
