Corporate Sponsorship. Your business, association or
corporation can sponsor FFA programs, events, scholarships and more. You can
also choose between an unrestricted gift, which allows us to distribute your
donation to an area where it's most needed, or a designated gift, which allows
you to allocate your donation to a specific FFA program or scholarship. For

Individual Gifts. Even in these continuing difficult
economic times, Americans remain committed to supporting those causes and
organizations in which they so firmly believe. Individuals believe strongly in
the Tennessee FFA and their giving is significant in time, talent and monetary
resources. Cash donations are tax-deductible, based on current tax laws and the
amount of your income. The Century Club is one easy method to contribute now or
committing to give $100 per year over the next 10-year period for a total of
$1,000 given or pledged.
