The Results Are In: Give FFA Day hits highest amount of donations ever received


Last week was National FFA Week, a time dedicated for members to share with their community their time with the organization.

Part of that week is Give FFA Day, a 24-hour campaign encouraging the local community to support members.

“Give FFA Day is the one day a year where we ask all of our donors to pull their funds together to create that impact,” says National FFA President Andrew Seibel. “Through our wonderful corporate donors like RFD-TV, those donations will be matched to create a much larger impact.”

This year, donations hit a record. Drum roll... they raised $721,506, benefiting National FFA and 51 FFA Associations.

RFD-TV was happy to match every dollar up to $100,000. John Deere and American Family Insurance also made donations, matching up to $10,000.

The top three states that raised the money were Oregon, Arkansas, and New York.

Thank you to all who donated to such an amazing organization!
