In conjunction with National FFA week, February 17-24, the National FFA Organization will host its ninth 24-hour campaign to raise awareness and support for FFA.

With New York FFA membership now exceeding 11,500, funding needs have never been greater.
Give FFA Day provides the NY FFA with the opportunity to raise funds in collaboration with other state associations across the nation.
The 2024 campaign is on pace to be the NY FFA Foundation's largest annual fundraising effort; five donors have pledged $40,000 in matching funds for the New York Give FFA Day campaign.
Daryle and Sharon Foster’s $10,000 matching gift was generously given to encourage FFA members and chapters to participate and secure gifts.
Additionally, $2,000 in prize money has been contributed to encourage and recognize the chapters that excel in their Give FFA Day efforts. The intent is that FFA chapters will ultimately integrate this initiative into their annual plans, as each dollar they raise essentially returns to them.
New York successfully launched its first major Give FFA Day campaign in 2023 and witnessed the power of networking through a social media campaign. Facebook and Instagram provided platforms to establish new connections among alumni and reach a broader audience of supporters.
Make a gift to NY FFA on February 22, by visiting www.FFA.org/GiveFFADay and select New York State. Checks can also be mailed to the NY FFA Foundation, 9340 Long Pond Rd, Croghan, NY 13327.
