February Foundation Update

Friday, February 15, 2019

*** Sent to All Contacts

Thank you to all of the chapters that have participated in the 2018-2019 Illinois Foundation FFA Local Collection Drive.  The collection drive is the cornerstone of the organization and without a successful drive, the Foundation would not be able to assist in funding all of the activities for the Illinois FFA members to enjoy.

Local Collection Drive - Budgeted Goal $375,000.00

The current collected total for the Local Collection Drive as of today, February 15, 2019:

  • Local Collection $258,215.36
  • State at Large $26,719.08
  • Total $284,934.44

Many ask, how does that compare to last year?  About the same:  

  • Local Collection Drive on 2/15/2018 was $242,198.54 
  • State at Large on 2/15/2018 was $37,463.32 
  • Total LAST YEAR on 2/15/2018 = $279,661.84

How about Sponsorships this year, where are we at with that?  Total Sponsorships as of today, 2/15/2019:  

  • Total = $122,900.00

How does that compare to last year Sponsorships?  

  • Total LAST YEAR on 2/15/2018= $81,613.97


To make our goal, we still have a ways to go, but we can't thank you enough for how much you have already collected.  Your efforts are amazing and tremendously appreciated.  

For those FFA chapters who want Foundation Certificates, please click here to requests those.  We need 2 weeks notice prior to your banquet to get these processed, printed and in the mail to you for your banquets.  Thanks so much!
