Blue Jackets, Bright Futures
The blue corduroy jacket is one of the most symbolic pieces of FFA membership and through the Blue Jackets, Bright Futures program, the Nebraska FFA Foundation strives to provide all deserving FFA members in Nebraska with a free FFA jacket and tie or scarf. Students must submit an application, which includes an advisor statement, and are selected from a committee of donors, supporters, Foundation Board Members and other friends of the FFA. The number of jackets given out relies directly on the number of donations received. In 2016, 265 jackets were donated to this program. If you wore a blue jacket at one time–or simply believe in what that jacket stands for–please consider a tax-deductible gift of $80 to help a young student display his or her FFA membership proudly. Funds are collected for this program each August.
Donations are accepted for the Blue Jackets. Bright Futures. program each August. Sign up to receive our e-newsletter below to receive Nebraska FFA Foundation updates and a reminder of when it's time to make your donation.
