State FFA Foundations Receive 'GivingTuesday' Matching Pledge
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/14/2018

Compeer Financial has pledged $7,500 in matching gift support to the FFA Foundations in Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota. It's part of the #GivingTuesday campaign, which follows the upcoming shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Compeer CEO Rod Hebrink, who once served as the Minnesota FFA State President in 1975-76, says each state will be eligible for up to $2,500 in funds, based on the amount raised on November 27.

"FFA played an important part of my life as a young adult and helped shape me into the leader I am today," Hebrink said. "FFA gave me the important foundation in giving presentations to small and large groups, interacting with farmers, and telling the story of agriculture and rural America."

Hebrink adds that agriculture education and youth organizations are important to Compeer Financial, and the future of agriculture and rural America.

To meet the $2,500 matching pledge from Compeer Financial, the Wisconsin FFA Foundation will be accepting online donations anytime on Tuesday, November 27. Gifts can be made via credit, debit and/or EFT directly online at: www.WisconsinFFAFoundation.org/donate
