Signature Programs and Events
Banking on Your Future - The Kansas FFA Foundation recognizes the value and opportunity the Kansas banking industry offers to the Kansas FFA Association members. As a result, the Foundation and the Kansas Bankers Association and Kansas Ag Bankers have established the “We’re Banking on your Future” program to encourage FFA members to learn more about the banking industry and acquire the skills they need to be successful while helping Kansas banks connect with talented young people who could potentially lead the industry in the future.
The “We’re Banking on your Future” program is designed to help encourage FFA members to consider a career in banking, give them a chance to learn about the industry first-hand, and, through this process, determine how the FFA can help the state’s banking community.
Cargill Blue Jacket Program - In 2010 the foundation and Cargill Meat Solutions launched our Cargill Blue Jacket grant program for members experiencing financial strain. Since then, more than 50 Blue Jacket grant awards have been presented to deserving members for the purchase of a new corduroy jacket. The Kansas FFA Alumni Association enhances the gifts by gifting new scarves and ties, making the grant complete for each recipient.
FFA Rocks! - Hand crafted by Fisher Rock in Home, Kans., the Kansas FFA Foundation makes available 4" x 8" FFA 8" x 8" emblem rocks for purchase in support of general foundation programming. Orders can be placed by contacting the Foundation.
