From Our Donors
 
 
“In the summer of 1964, at age 14, I knew I wanted to be a lawyer or a farmer. FFA prepared me for both. After winning three state speaking gold medals and serving as a state and national officer, the leadership and speaking skills I developed through FFA put the foundations in place for a career in law. FFA changed my life! I could not be who I am today without the skills I learned through FFA. Supporting the FFA Foundation is the right thing to do and I am proud to make an investment that will pay dividends for countless generations to come.”

”We have been given so many blessings in life and we want other people to have the same opportunities we did. Some of the assets that we do have we want to give away so we can see the positive impact they have on students now and in the future. We looked at what meant a lot to us and one of those causes was FFA, specifically FFA jackets.”
- Glenn & Ginger Sterk, Montezuma, Iowa
FROM OUR DONORS
 
"I give monthly to the Corduroy Club because for so many years, Iowa FFA and the Iowa FFA Foundation gave me life-long friends, life-changing experiences and opportunities that have opened doors for me that I didn't even know existed. This is one small way that I can pay it forward for all of the good this organization has done for me. Agriculture's future depends upon those students wearing the blue corduroy and if my donation has the ability to play a small part in an FFA Member changing the world, then I have accomplished what I was put here on this earth to do."
