Mission Statements

The SD FFA Foundation strives to provide an avenue of funding which will stimulate, promote and support the best interests of FFA students; to create an awareness of agriculture careers, agri-business opportunities and the needs of a growing and diversified industry. 

FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agriculture education. 

The mission of agricultural education is to prepare and support individuals for careers, build awareness and develop leadership for the food, fiber and natural resources. 

History

The South Dakota FFA Foundation was established in 1974 to support the needs of Agricultural Education and the FFA in South Dakota. Each year, the Foundation's goal has been to increase funding to develop, maintain and enhance FFA initiatives. Therefore, the Foundation has become important to the success of Ag Ed/FFA in South Dakota.  The Foundation received 501c(3) status in 1983 as a non-profit foundation.

Structure

The South Dakota FFA Foundation is governed by a Board comprised of the Trustee and State-Wide Sponsoring Committees.  As a Board, they develop policies, set priorities and oversee the management of the foundation.  The State-Wide Sponsoring Committee members represent business and industry leaders from each FFA district, and assist with securing financial support.   Agricultural Education instructors from each FFA district make up the Trustee Committee.

Supporting the South Dakota FFA Foundation

Financially, the South Dakota FFA Foundation has had great success in securing support for agricultural education through: 

  • Donations from individuals, business and industry, associations, and FFA chapters for special projects and the general fund (operational and fund-raising expenses).

To continue to meet the long-term financial needs for operational expenses, the foundation is implementing "The Future is Now," a multi-year giving program.

The South Dakota FFA Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization.
