For 77 years, John Deere and the National FFA Organization have worked to find the next generation of leaders and strengthen the agriculture industry.
2020 is a year that’s come with many challenges, but John Deere says its commitment to both FFA and agricultural education is stronger than ever.
Building on a legacy of support, John Deere says it will donate one million dollars in 2021 to help support the National FFA Organization’s mission to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
“Throughout the years, John Deere has shown their continuing commitment to FFA and our goal of building the next generation of leaders,” says Molly Ball, President of the National FFA Foundation and the chief marketing officer for National FFA.
“In today’s climate, every dollar is being stretched. The fact that they find value in our members and our commitment to students and educators speaks volumes.”
Aaron Wetzel, John Deere’s Vice President of Production Systems, says, “We believe FFA is as important to the future of agriculture as any cutting-edge machine, technology, or service that we will deliver.”
