Endowments

Endowments provide donors with opportunities to create living legacies. When you create an endowment, you touch the lives of future generations. Your gift is immediately invested and, when fully funded, produces annual income to support the endowment's purpose for years to come. While cash gifts are vitally important, endowments provide certain, steady support in perpetuity which enable us to plan for the future with greater predictability than otherwise possible.

There is no better legacy to North Carolina FFA than a gift of endowment.

Annual Donation

Invest in your company's future by supporting future employees! FFA gives students the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the workforce and succeed! Join the corporations and small business that currently sponsor NC FFA programs. You will be ensuring a bright future for future generations of customers, employees, and leaders. Areas available for sponsorship include Career Development Events, Proficiency Awards, and sessions at State Convention.

Planned Giving

You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support our cause. Please contact Alycia Thornton to discuss opportunities or to request a free estate planning guide. You can find additional information about making a planned gift to the NC FFA Foundation at NC State here.
