FFA Foundation to Boost Blue & Gold Society Membership Level
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/11/2014
The Wisconsin FFA Foundation board of directors has voted to increase the donation level for the Blue and Gold Society membership from $10,000 to $15,000. The program was formed as a way to honor and recognize donors of major gifts and/or planned gifts.
Foundation Board President Julie Larson says the Society continues to grow in membership numbers through the thoughtful contributions of its members.
"We appreciate our Blue and Gold Society members for the lasting impression they make on Wisconsin FFA and its members," Larson said. "Increasing this membership level will empower individuals to provide greater long-term support of the organization."
Members can designate the gift any way they would like. Many choose to establish an endowment to perpetually support a scholarship or other specific program. They can also tailor scholarship criteria as desired.
The change will take effect on January 1, 2015, and a single installment payment received before that date will ensure the lower membership rate.
