Why should you support the FFAFFA members

1.  FFA members are present and future consumers of your products.  All have influence on purchasing decisions in their families.

2.  Agricultural Education/FFA is a vital source of future employees in agriculture/agribusiness.

3.  Strong, viable, dynamic leadership, the product of FFA, is crucial to the future of America and its agriculture.

4.  We all have a stake in a progressive agricultural industry to product food and fiber for our country's needs and the needs of all people.  All members are producers of those products.

5.  FFA awards and incentives are based on entrepreneurship.  Hard work, independence, profitability, and competition -- all are certainly key concepts for America in the years to come.

Top 10 Things You Can Do to Leave a Legacy

  1. Prepare a will. Only 50% of those who pass away have one. Without a will, you may lose control over your belongings.
  2. Leave a gift in your will for the nonprofit and charitable organizations that made a difference in your life. Less than 6% of American households have included nonprofits in an estate plan. Imagine the positive impact on our community if everyone made a donation to a favorite nonprofit.
  3. Leave a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the assets in your will to a nonprofit of your choice.
  4. Consider using assets for your charitable gift. These include but aren't limited to: stocks, bonds, CDs, real estate, vehicles, art and jewelry. Such gifts may even provide tax savings.
  5. Name a nonprofit of your choice as the beneficiary of your pension plan or IRA.
  6. Purchase a new life insurance policy naming your favorite nonprofit as the beneficiary.
  7. Name your favorite nonprofit as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy.
  8. Remember loved ones with memorial gifts.
  9. Encourage family and friends to leave gifts to nonprofits in their wills.
  10. Ask your financial advisor to include charitable giving as a part of client counseling.
