Thank you for considering memorializing your loved one through the Wyoming FFA Foundation. I’d like to share a few facts about our memorial program to ease the burden on your family during this difficult time.
The Wyoming FFA Foundation exists to support the goals and activities of Wyoming’s State FFA Association, which includes our 53 chapters and 2,305 members. Our mission statement says it best:
Supporting Wyoming FFA to ensure the program’s ability to continue making a positive difference in students’ lives by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
To accomplish this mission, the Foundation will:
Financially assist the Wyoming FFA Association.
Serve as a liaison between the business community and FFA.
Encourage youth membership in the FFA Association.
Provide educational enhancement opportunities to Wyoming FFA Advisors.
Work to let Wyomingites know about the value of Wyoming FFA and its benefits to the state’s young people
Memorial gifts most frequently arrive at the Foundation in one of two forms—
A check from the family, combining multiple gifts
Individual contributions sent directly to the Foundation in your loved one’s memory
Once the Wyoming FFA Foundation receives a gift, we thank the individual contributor and notify your family. We include their name and address. We don’t request the amount unless asked to do so by the family. We also pass along any sentiments shared in the mailing.
Memorials to the FFA Foundation can be directed toward special projects or placed in the Foundation’s hands to be used at the discretion of our volunteer board of directors. Some popular areas to which families have been directing memorials include:
General fund to be used at the Board’s discretion
Voucher Fund (used to help purchase an FFA jacket for members in need)
Other options, such as the following, are also available:
State Officer Travel
Wyoming FFA Convention
