Fundraising:

Alumni and Supporters Chapters work with their local FFA Advisor and Chapter members to fundraise so that students can attend local, region, state and national conferences and conventions, and other member opportunities throughout the year. These funds help remove barriers to student participation. Recent changes in education funding have directly impacted how local FFA Chapters disperse funding which adversely affects a local chapters’ ability to fund individual students seeking greater opportunities. Tightened school district budgets along with these new regulations make an Alumni and Supporters Chapter, as a recognized non-profit, more valuable than ever.  Working with the local Agriculture educator and FFA Advisors, Alumni and Supporters can become the financial steward for the FFA Chapter.
