The Arizona Agricultural Education/FFA Foundation is celebrating 35 years! A group of passionate and dedicated individuals gathered in 1985 to establish the Foundation to support agricultural education and the FFA in Arizona. Today the Foundation continues the mission and vision to provide opportunities for youth and support our agricultural educators.
We could not celebrate this monumental occasion without the support of donors such as yourself. We hope you will help us kick off our year of celebration through a financial gift in honor of 35 years by donating $35, $350, $3,500 or any amount you would like to donate! We are committed to our mission of providing expanded educational and leadership opportunities for the agricultural education programs across the state of Arizona. Every contribution makes a difference in the lives of our youth and teachers. We dedicate the funds through our anniversary celebration and Giving Tuesday to continue to build the Foundation Endowment. Your contribution will make a significant impact on the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
All contributions to the Arizona Agricultural Education/FFA Foundation, no matter how big or small, make a difference for agriculture students and teachers statewide. Your gift can be designated for programs, activities or where resources are needed most. Donations can be made 'In Honor of' or "In Memory of' which is always a nice contribution recognizing that individual.
Contributions can also be made to Scholarship and Endowment Funds to support the education of agriculture students with financial need.
For donations above $5,000 please contact us about payment with a check.
Monthly giving is the easiest and most convenient way to donate to the Arizona FFA Foundation. You choose to contribute at any amount, and we will automatically charge your credit or debit card. You can change or cancel your pledge at any time. Supporting the Monthly Giving Program is not only easy for you but great for us as well. It allows us to plan ahead knowing there is ongoing support for our programs.
Please make sure to choose a recurring donation option in the "donation frequency" section. These contributions will be used to support the Foundations Greatest Need. Make sure to ask your employer if they would be willing to match your monthly gift!
