MOLINE, Ill. — The John Deere Foundation committed nearly $4 million in grants to the National FFA Organization.

The multiyear giving will support educational outreach and FFA’s mission — to lift up the next generation of leaders in agriculture.

The grants will provide access to resources and educational programs to students interested in exploring a variety of agricultural careers and leadership opportunities.

“We are incredibly grateful for John Deere’s continued support and longstanding partnership,” said Molly Ball, president of the National FFA Foundation and chief marketing officer of the National FFA Organization.

“By making an unrestricted, multiyear gift, John Deere is able to have the greatest impact on FFA members. This support truly helps us work toward our mission of preparing members for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.”
