About Michigan FFA FoundationThe Michigan FFA Foundation is the fundraising arm for the Michigan FFA Association. The Michigan FFA Association consists of over 5,300 members from 111 chapters. FFA is a diverse organization, operating in rural, urban, and suburban schools. Students ages 12-21 enrolled in agriscience and natural resources education programs are eligible for membership.
The Michigan FFA Foundation supports annual FFA programs by seeking funds from individuals, business, and industry. Many organizations have agreed to become sponsors for specific FFA contests, leadership programs, and career development events. In addition, continual support is fronted from FFA Alumni, FFA Chapters and educators to ensure that every FFA program is fully funded.
Donations and sponsorships subsidize achievement awards, scholarships, leadership building programs, career development events and State FFA Convention. It is only through the generosity of individual and corporate donors that FFA members are able to develop their self-esteem, skills, and leadership abilities.
The Michigan FFA also has the distinction of being one of only two state FFA foundations in the country that is affiliated with a land-grant university. With its ties to Michigan State University and the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the Michigan FFA has established a record of leadership success in agricultural sales, marketing, human nutrition, food science, and animal health. It is proven across the State of Michigan that FFA members succeed and take on leadership roles. The leadership and career skills that FFA instills in its members helps develop well-rounded, educated team members.
