2018 was an amazing year for the Georgia FFA Foundation!
We can never say thank you enough to those that support the Blue and Gold.
Our volunteers, supporters, and donors we thank you for all that you do for our 42,000 Georgia FFA members. From sharing our posts on social media, to giving a monetary gift, volunteering your time, or serving as a sponsor we would not be the Georgia FFA Association and Foundation without you!

We hope you enjoy reading some of our highlights from 2018 as we prepare for all that 2019 has in store for us. 
Forever Blue and Gold! 
On Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 the Sunbelt Ag Expo hosted the Annual Georgia FFA Foundation's Titan/Goodyear Farms Tire Auction. With your support, we were able to raise over $27,000!
We would like to thank the Sunbelt Ag Expo, Titan/Goodyear Farm Tires, and our volunteers for helping to make this event such a success. 
Going Once, Going Twice, Fall for Something Nice
That was the theme for the auction hosted by our friends at Georgia Grown!
The auction was held on Saturday, October 13th, 2018 at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter. 
At this event, attendees could purchased items that ranged from Georgia Grown products, gift baskets, football ticket packages, and much more! Proceeds raised from this event benefited the Georgia FFA Foundation and Georgia 4-H Foundation through their efforts of supporting their members. 
Through your efforts and mission to support the future of Georgia,
we raised $8,000.00!

Thank you to our friends and family at Georgia Grown and the Department of Agriculture for this wonderful opportunity of support! The future of Georgia's agriculture shines bright with Blue and Gold!  
2018 Georgia FFA Foundation Business and Industry Tour
With over 1,000 miles traveled, 15 completed stops visiting with a vast variety of Georgia's business and industry representatives, the Georgia State FFA Officers and Foundation team had a successful B&I Tour!
The Business and Industry (B&I) Tour is a long standing Foundation tradition where each State FFA Officer team travels across the state for a week long tour learning about Georgia's diverse agriculture industry. Businesses also gain a deeper understanding of the Georgia FFA.
The tour kicked off in Covington, Georgia at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center and the team traveled to Atlanta. From there, they departed to South West Georgia, visited in Middle Georgia, and wrapped back up in Covington.
Throughout the week, the team visited with the following businesses and industries:
 Hall Booth Smith, AT&T, Georgia Restaurant Association, Yanmar, Oak Pond Nursery,
C.M. Strippling Irrigation Research, Hays,LTI, McLendon Farms, Middle Georgia EMC,
AgGeorgia Farm Credit, Georgia Cotton Commission, Ardent Mills, Triangle Chemical Company, and the Georgia Cattlemen's Association.
We would like to thank all of the representatives that we visited with along our travels to discuss Georgia's agricultural industry and Georgia FFA! 
At the 11th Annual Blue and Gold Gala, AGCO purchased the Dinner for Ten at the Governor's Mansion. This item was featured in our Live Auction portion of the Gala. On Monday, December 13th, 2018, Governor Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal graciously opened their doors to host this event. A delicious dinner was provided by the Georgia Agribusiness Council and two of our State FFA Officers had the opportunity to attend. 
It was night filled with Christmas spirit as we toured the Mansion, ate a wonderful meal, and had the opportunity to discuss Georgia agriculture and FFA.
We would like to thank Governor Deal, First Lady Deal, the Georgia Agribusiness Council, AGCO, and all that attended for making this a wonderful event!

This Holiday Season, the Georgia FFA Foundation created the Celebrate the JOY of FFA Christmas Campaign. Through this campaign, we wanted people to honor and remember those that had impacted their FFA journey. As you made a gift in someone's name, we created an ornament with their name on it, and displayed it from our Foundation Christmas Tree! Because of those that made a difference in Georgia FFA, we were able to raise over $900! Thank you for helping us Celebrate the JOY of FFA! Below, you will see a list of everyone that had a gift made in their honor!
