About Us

The Kansas FFA Foundation, Inc is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit which was established in 1982 to serve as a scholarship endowment for Kansas FFA members.  In 2004 it was expanded to include a larger Board of Directors (Trustees), an Executive Director and a wide range of funding priorities.  Today it has grown into an $800,000 Foundation that funds most aspects of the Kansas FFA Association. 

Mission Statement

The Kansas FFA Foundation exists to enable Kansas Agriculture Education and FFA programs to empower future leaders and their passions. The Kansas FFA Foundation does this by developing and sustaining collaborative relationships resulting in financial support and service opportunities for the Kansas FFA and its members.
