Ways to help

Create a Scholarship

Endowed Scholarships:

An endowed scholarship is a wonderful way to establish a legacy. You determine the name of the endowed scholarship and you help set the criteria for selecting a deserving student to receive the award. The interest earned from your endowed scholarship fund is awarded each year in the form of a scholarship. The principal amount is never spent, thus ensuring the perpetuity of the scholarship and the legacy of giving for a lifetime.

The scholarships are awarded annually at the Kansas FFA Convention. You will be seated with the recipient and their family at during the recognition session.

The minimum amount required to establish an endowed scholarship is $20,000 which may be paid in a lump sum or over a specific time period scheduled with the Executive Director.

Please contact the Kansas FFA Foundation for information on endowing a scholarship and making a difference to a young person.

Limited Term Scholarships:

A limited term and one time scholarship may be established at a minimum level of $1,000

Gift of Grain

The gift of grain is an easy way for producers to give back to FFA members. When dropping off grain at an elevator, co-op or other selling facility, let the weighmaster know that a portion of that load is for the Kansas FFA Foundation.

If you were to tell them that 100 bushels of the load is for the FFA Foundation, whatever the current market price for the grain selling for the day, the Kansas FFA would receive those proceeds.

Please know we are not structured to hold the actual grain at any point in time, so donation of the physical grain is not accepted.

By structuring the gift as such, the producer potentially reduces their income from grain sales and lessens their tax liability. Please contact your local tax advisor for additional details.

Please contact the Kansas FFA Foundation if you have any further questions.
