Grants for Growing in 2018

In 1928, the National FFA Organization was founded by a group of young farmers to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing nation. Today the organization grows future biologists, chemists, veterinarians and engineers.

Tractor Supply has been one of the longest and largest sponsors of FFA, dating back to 1985.

Since 1985, we have contributed over $9.2 million to support education and scholarship programs that are preparing students for the agricultural challenges ahead. This support allows thousands of members, from all across the country, to pursue interests in equine science, poultry, production, landscape management… eight areas of focus in all. Read more about our partnership and the many ways we support FFA.

In 2016, Tractor Supply introduced the Grants for Growing Fundraiser. This year's fundraiser earned $830,000, enabling us to award 271 grants for FFA chapters across the country. Just this year alone, these grants will directly impact over 30,000 FFA high-school students. From research farms to outdoor learning centers, the grants will be used to purchase the supplies needed to fulfill the projects such as power tools, hydroponic systems, fencing, vegetation, livestock, poultry, feed, mulch and much more. For more details about the program, visit www.FFA.org/grantsforgrowing.

We are also proud to be the national sponsor of FFA Week. Held every year during George Washington's birthday, this event provides thousands of members with an opportunity to share their passion for agriculture with the public and demonstrate their leadership skills by volunteering for community projects. Tractor Supply stores play an active role in this event, staging store fundraisers and demonstrations that highlight the accomplishments of local FFA Chapters.

These experiences and the leadership skills they foster will equip thousands of individuals for personal success. We can't think of a better way to ensure the future of our agricultural land and lifestyle.
