$20,000 Goal

For more than 96 years, the California FFA has been making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through the California agricultural education program. As an intra-curricular organization, the California FFA engages more than 103,000 FFA members in 360 high school and middle school chapters throughout California. Our hands-on learning is focused on agriculture, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health, natural resources, and leadership. We strive to give EVERY member an opportunity to grow a brighter future. California FFA works hard to support the success of today's students, who are the agricultural leaders of tomorrow.

Right now, in every facet of agriculture, there is a need for thinkers, doers, and entrepreneurs, who can work towards meeting the needs of the agriculture industry today, while developing a vision for tomorrow. FFA members can and will continue to meet that need, but we need your support. 

Supporting the California FFA on the Big Day of Giving will help us work together to grow a brighter future for agriculture, for youth, and for our community. After all, growing a brighter future takes experts in every field!
