Gifts of Grain

The Michigan FFA Foundation Gifts of Grain is a program in which grain or other commodity crops are gifted to benefit the Michigan FFA Foundation. By gifting grain to the Foundation, you can maximize your tax benefit while also supporting the Glassbrook FFA Endowment.
Supporting the Glassbrook FFA Endowment is an excellent way to impact the quality of the leadership mission that FFA promotes and develops in its members, now, and for generations to come. It offers a dependable, perpetual source of funding.

Imagine making a contribution that leaves a legacy to the Michigan FFA for generations to come. The Glassbrook FFA Endowment is absolutely essential if we are to remain leaders in agricultural education. It is a great way to link your legacy with the future... forever.
