Helping tomorrow’s leaders today

Our purpose is to strengthen agricultural education and the Kansas FFA program, so each student can develop their potential for personal growth, career success and leadership. We do that by seeking out individuals, companies and organizations that believe in making a difference by providing financial support to programs encouraging leadership development and career exploration.



The Kansas FFA Foundation exists to enable Kansas Agriculture Education and FFA programs to empower future leaders and their passions. The Kansas FFA Foundation does this by developing and sustaining collaborative relationships resulting in financial support and service opportunities for the Kansas FFA and its members.
