CHS to Announce $1.5 Million Gift to National FFA Foundation




On Thursday, September 25, 2014, at 11:45 a.m., CHS will announce its commitment to furthering agricultural education in the United States through a gift of $1.5 million dollars, to be given over the next 3 years to the National FFA Foundation.


The gifting ceremony will take place at CHS headquarters in Inver Grove Heights, Minn., just in advance of the National Teach Ag Day celebration. The 10-minute announcement will include a ceremonial check presentation by Lisa Zell, Executive Vice President, Business Solutions at CHS, and remarks by Dr. Wm. Jay Jackman, Executive Director of the National Association of Agricultural Educators and Molly Ball, President of the National FFA Foundation.


A large portion of the CHS donation will be earmarked for the National Teach Ag Campaign ($275,000) and the Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education.


The National Teach Ag Campaign is an initiative to raise awareness of the need for more agricultural educators and celebrate the contributions agricultural educators make in their classrooms every day. CHS has been a sponsor of the National Teach Ag Campaign since 2011, contributing more than $450,000. The campaign is a project of the National Council for Agricultural Education, led by the National Association of Agricultural Educators. It is funded by CHS, DuPont Pioneer and Growth Energy, as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.


About National FFA Foundation

The National FFA Foundation builds partnerships with industry, education, government, other foundations and individuals to secure financial resources that recognize FFA member achievements, develop student leaders and support the future of agricultural education. Governed by a 19-member board of trustees comprised of educators, business leaders, individual donors and FFA alumni, the foundation is a separately-registered nonprofit organization. About 82 percent of every dollar received by the foundation supports FFA members and agricultural education opportunities. For more, visit FFA.org/Give.
