The "I Believe in the Future of Ag" campaign is almost over for this school year! The campaign ends February 28 and after that point the funds will go towards next year's donations.
"I Believe" allows your local chapters to raise money and build a supportive FFA community. As a donor you can support your local FFA chapter directly by filling out an "I Believe" card that your local FFA chapter will have or donating on our website and designating your funds to I Believe along with the chapter name. The chapter will receive 100% of your donation plus receive a portion of the $35,000 matching funds donated by corporate sponsors based on the amount the chapter raised.
Every chapter in Nebraska can participate in the "I Believe" campaign. Wisner- Pilger's FFA Advisor, Wade Overturf, has his chapter take part in the "I Believe" campaign. This year his chapter went door to door to sell products. If they didn't want to buy what they were selling, the FFA members offered for them to simply donate to their chapter through the campaign.
Overturf said, "Wisner- Pilger FFA has great supporters of our program in our community." The Wisner- Pilger FFA Chapter has actively participated in the campaign for several years, as a result; he said the chapter has a loyal group of supporters who look forward to donating to the program annually.
The Wisner- Pilger FFA Chapter plans to use their "I Believe" funds towards their community service activities like Feed the Farmers in the fall and various activities during FFA Week.
If you would like to donate to your local FFA chapter for them to receive 100% of your donation back plus the matching funds click here to donate or contact your local FFA advisor.
