welcome letter

Dear Friends, Character development. Building confidence. Strengthening communities. Creating teamwork. Influencing others. You make it possible for FFA members to develop the skills they need today to meet the challenges of tomorrow. This past year was a banner year. We expanded FFA to new schools and increased membership nationally. The 85th National FFA Convention & Expo drew a record number of attendees. But most importantly and with your help, we delivered leadership and technical skills to students that will serve them for the rest of their lives. Your gifts are at work every day helping the 557,318 FFA members live the motto: Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live and Living to Serve. Consider the 2012 American FFA Degree recipients – the highest honor in our organization. These student members used their education in agriculture, business and leadership to productively invest $103 million toward their supervised agricultural experience programs. Or reflect on the more than 10,000 FFA members who participated in 141,359 hours of volunteer service learning last year. We estimate those FFA members contributed $3.1 million in time value to local communities, organizations and more. Of course, those numbers don’t touch the scope and impact of local FFA chapters nationwide, and they don’t tout the positive influence on those individual communities. Every year, FFA chapters plan and execute community service and servicelearning events, agricultural education and awareness drives,

and more on top of the fundamental education and development of chapter members. We estimate that every $1 granted to the national level for local FFA chapters in 2012 produced a return on investment topping $14. Because of your generosity, FFA members are building confidence and becoming leaders and advocates for agriculture. They are devoted to telling the story of FFA and promoting more than 300 careers in agricultural science, business and technology. These great successes were made possible by our 1,194 corporate donors and our increasing number of individual contributors. In fact, corporate support raced to a record $16.2 million in 2012, while individual giving jumped 107 percent to $604,000 with an additional $225,000 in planned revocable gifts. All told, core FFA programs – including career development events, proficiencies, scholarships and more – were funded at 90 percent from donors and supporters. That high number reflects the commitment of our supporters and illustrates how FFA can make a significant difference in the lives of FFA members. This annual report details many of those who gave to FFA in the past year and stories from the field describing the impact of the crucial support provided. The support enables those critical 11,000 teachers and advisors to lead FFA chapters and countless parents and volunteers to step in where most needed. Thank you for supporting FFA and agricultural education and for making it possible for FFA members to succeed toward promising careers.

Regards,

Glenn Stith continues his lifelong FFA involvement

G

lenn Stith’s connections to FFA date back nearly as far as he can remember. Now the chair-elect of the National FFA Foundation’s Individual Giving Council, he recalls when his parents made it clear they would support both he and his two brothers in one school activity: FFA. For his parents, the character development, leadership skills and business experience afforded in that corduroy blue jacket was simply invaluable. “My dad told me and my two brothers, Dale and Leslie, that we would have to find our own transportation back from high school sporting events. We lived 20 miles out,” Stith says. “But my dad

took time away from farming to drive us to and from FFA activities. That’s how strongly my parents felt about agricultural education and FFA.” Stith, who grew up on a farm in Kentucky, wound up using his FFA experiences to propel him through an extremely successful career. He received his undergraduate degree in agricultural economics at the University of Kentucky and his master’s degree from Washington University in St. Louis. He worked for Monsanto as vice president of U.S. branded business and was responsible for seeds, biotech traits and chemistry. Stith traveled around the world, through North America

and to Asia, South America and Europe. “I did way more than an old country boy from Kentucky ever dreamed of doing,” Stith says. Stith credits FFA for his achievements and has long made it a priority to give back to the National FFA Foundation. Stith was instrumental in encouraging support from his former employer Monsanto, and today makes it a personal concern. “It’s an obligation we have as corporate citizens and part of the broader agricultural family to give back to our youth,” Stith says on the reasoning for Monsanto’s extensive FFA support.

“The most satisfying thing I can do is give back and help young people achieve their dreams and have an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful career like I had. I take a great deal of pleasure in contributing. There is no greater satisfaction than being able to give back to a good cause.” – Glenn Stith

In 2008, 2009 and 2010, Monsanto was a platinum-level sponsor of FFA in large part due to Stith’s leadership. They continue their company tradition of supporting FFA today. “Supporting FFA also creates a great way to attract and recruit some of the best young leaders into an organization’s pipeline. All of it is great for your brand image to be associated with the premier agriculture youth organization in America,” he explains. As a company, Monsanto supports FFA programs including the Washington Leadership Conference, the National Leadership Conference for State Officers, the Agricultural Sales Career Development Event (CDE) and the Prepared Public Speaking CDE. Stith also played a large part in encouraging corporate employee giving to FFA through various engagement programs at Monsanto. One such

6 | 2012 Annual Report

program brought together a group of employees in a company running club called the “Road Runners” and influenced them to solicit donations to help Monsanto reach an overall employee giving goal of $100,000. “At their races, the runners would wear jerseys saying ‘Monsanto Road Runners Support FFA,’” Stith says. “Together, they raised nearly $18,000 and pushed Monsanto’s employee contribution to FFA over $100,000 – a record that stands unbroken.” Now retired after more than 34 years with Monsanto, Stith – a former participant in FFA CDEs such as Prepared Public Speaking and Parliamentary Procedure – makes annual gifts to the National FFA Foundation in addition to his role on the Individual Giving Council. “The most satisfying thing I can do is give back and help young people achieve their dreams and have an

opportunity to enjoy a wonderful career like I had,” he says. “I take a great deal of pleasure in contributing. There is no greater satisfaction than being able to give back to a good cause.” Stith is a ten-year donor to National FFA and stays involved to see how the organization is continually evolving to ensure members are prepared for future careers. “Visit a local chapter or the National FFA Convention & Expo,” Stith says. “That will make you a believer. FFA and agricultural education are the real deal when it comes to youth development. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want to help youth prepare for the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow.” “I encourage anyone who has benefited from FFA, or if your children benefited, to consider becoming an annual giver or making a planned gift to FFA. It’s money well spent.” – Geoffrey Miller

Far-Reaching Support Learn how other FFA alumni are positively impacting local programs Members of local FFA Alumni affiliates work as a support structure for FFA advisors, members and chapters. They are mentors, fundraisers, coaches, chaperones and organizers. They are there to help. • In Michigan, FFA Alumni members organized an opportunity for school administrators to travel to the National FFA Convention & Expo to experience FFA on a national scale. • Mississippi FFA Alumni members sponsored and selected an award that honors first-year agriculture instructors for their hard work.

• Ohio FFA Alumni member Donna Meller, a science teacher, championed her school’s agriculture department by assisting with agriscience projects and supporting the FFA chapter’s fruit sales. • Illinois’ Dean Olson played an instrumental role in saving the Geneseo High School FFA Chapter in 1990 and has been a key member of the Illinois FFA Alumni ever since. • The California FFA Alumni solved a long-time issue of available judges to staff the various competitive events at the state FFA convention.

A good

Egg

Teen with a passion for poultry farming receives an SAE grant to further her dream

F

or many teenage girls, morning’s main chore remains primping and preening to fashionable perfection. But until a year ago, for Elicia Engel of the Campbellsport FFA Chapter in Eden, Wis., her before-school routine allowed little time for diva endeavors. With no running water in the henhouse, daybreak meant lugging bucket after bucket of water to her hens and hauling even more to her pigs. “I’m in after-school sports, so I would have to go up there and do it before school,” she says, speaking of the days prior to applying for and earning a $1,000 grant for an Animal Systems SAE (sponsored by CTB, Inc.). Caring for livestock takes year-round dedication and hard work. Add to that the absence of running water or electricity, and you have a farm experience that few freshmen would find mildly entertaining, if tolerable. Whenever lighting or heating was required for her animals, the family strung together extension cords and snaked them through the grass from

their house to the shed, not unlike the garden hoses that lay stretched across their property. Engel says it wasn’t the safest situation. But effusively thankful for the grant, Engel used the money to get trenches dug, pipes laid and running water installed, as well as an electric line. Now a sophomore, Engel recalls how winning the grant changed her life. “I’ve learned so much. Responsibility is always a big one when it comes to taking care of animals, and money management too. You have to prioritize to know what you’re doing and what to get,” she says. “I don’t think I could thank anybody enough, because I’ve had so many great opportunities.” Engel’s money management skills are apparent. She used the grant not only for the installation of water and electricity but also to buy heat lamps, a pig feeder, a water heater and additional supplies. And to further her CDE, she purchased more chickens. “I was able to expand my flock, and now I’m hoping to get more chickens. We definitely need them to keep up

with the demand,” she says. With 40 hens laying almost three dozen eggs a day, Engel has added another chore to her daily routine – collecting eggs. She sells them for $2.50 a dozen. It’s a business that’s taken off by word of mouth and “a sign at the bend in the road.” “I sell them to neighbors, who have told their friends about them, and at church, and we have regulars in town,” she says. “I can’t really keep up, but we try to get everybody eggs.” No doubt, this driven young entrepreneur will see to it that her hens are cared for and her small business grows. But Engel admits she’ll eventually have decisions to make about her flock and her future. “I know I can’t take them with me to college, but I’ve always loved animals, and who knows, this might take me somewhere.” The possibilities seem limitless – even if she puts all her eggs in one basket.

Teacher strives to draw future recruits into the agricultural education field

Oregon agricultural education teacher Wes Crawford instructs students. Crawford has been teaching for six years.

10 | 2012 Annual Report

I

t is said, “Agriculture teachers never have the same day twice.” One day they’re in the classroom or lab, the next they’re out helping students in the field, prepping teams for an FFA event, or with their sleeves rolled up, leading their chapter in a community service activity. But one constant that agriculture teacher Wes Crawford of Sutherlin, Ore., enjoys every day is his students’ devotion to FFA. This spring during his school’s annual fundraiser, the FFA members were chomping at the bit to volunteer. He says, “We had our plant sale, and I said to one of the girls, ‘How long are you staying?’ and she said, ‘Until you make me go home.’” Her enthusiasm is common. And it’s this fire-in-the-belly spirit that Crawford hopes to harness so that he might guide these eager students to become agriculture teachers themselves. He knows that more than half of all U.S. states are experiencing a critical shortage of agriculture teachers. Fortunately for him and other impassioned colleagues, the national Teach Ag Campaign, led by the National Association of Agricultural Educators, launched in the fall of 2009 to help turn this around. Supported in part by industry sponsors and individual donors, campaign efforts are underway to help raise awareness of the need to recruit and retain agriculture teachers, and to encourage students to enter the profession. The program also supports and celebrates the commitment and contributions of current agriculture educators. Crawford says it’s important that there not only be more students going into agricultural education but that learning institutions turn out truly qualified teachers who are equipped to do their job well and enjoy it. Too often new teachers can become overwhelmed, then burn out and quit. This sixth-year agriculture science and technology teacher has been involved

in the campaign since its inception, and he takes to heart the mantra: “Teach Ag. Do what you love. Love what you do.” Crawford and his wife, Kate, are both agricultural education teachers who grew up in farming families, and both were FFA members. His wife teaches in a school district a few miles away. “It makes for a lot of easy collaboration,” he says. “And when you get a vacation together, you know where you’re going to go – whether it’s to Indianapolis in the fall, state convention in the spring, or an agriculture teacher conference in the summer.” His students are also fully immersed in all things agriculture. Sometimes they’ll stay after school for hours, because he says they’d much rather do FFA activities with their peers or teacher than be at home. For some, their home life’s not ideal and school can be a refuge and reprieve. “There are those who are good, competent, capable kids from great families, but they never get pushed,” he says. “Here, they get the opportunity to really apply themselves and put into practice those qualities of leadership skills.” Crawford says the great thing about agricultural education (and FFA) is that it allows for all types of students to be involved and get something out of it. “We’ve had kids who are three-sport athletes, Associated Student Body officers and everything in between to the kids where the only thing they do is FFA,” he says. “Agricultural education is so diverse. And the beauty of that diversity is that we can provide a wide range of opportunity and motivation to all these different students. It gives them their niche.” Hopefully one day, in the not-toodistant future, they’ll return the favor and help young students find theirs – in agricultural education.

Daily Commitment National FFA employees contribute to the future of the organization

E

mployees of the National FFA Organization and the National FFA Foundation toil daily to support FFA at every level across the country. From planning and executing the nation’s largest student gathering (the annual National FFA Convention & Expo) to making sure a local FFA chapter receives pins or plaques in time for a banquet, plenty goes into ensuring FFA both survives and thrives. And for many of those employees, the dedication to FFA and agricultural education extends far past those job duties. Many are also so firmly devoted to the cause that they take part in an annual employee giving effort through the National FFA Foundation that directly benefits FFA members. In 2012, the average contribution from employees reached $680. In the past five years alone, contributions from employees totaled more than $140,000. Natalie Clayton, the annual giving manager for the foundation, says the FFA employees’ generosity shows how important they find the FFA mission. “The National FFA Foundation allows employees of FFA to support something

12 | 2012 Annual Report

that matches their passion and values,” Clayton says. “FFA employee giving is truly an opportunity for staff members to feel great about supporting what they believe in.” It’s a living, breathing version of “walking the walk” for those who work at the National FFA Center and National FFA Merchandise Center in Indianapolis and in the field. FFA employees can contribute directly to the foundation’s leadership fund or can opt to donate to various funds or endowments. The different programs include everything from the Dr. Larry D. and Joy L. Case Endowment that supports agriculture teacher training and other initiatives to the FFA Employee Chapter Jacket Program that provides FFA jackets to members in need. One endowment – the Lisa and Dan Stone Memorial Endowment – is dedicated to Lisa, a former FFA staff member, and her husband who were tragically killed in an automobile accident in 2011. The endowment – started by FFA employees – funds a scholarship for FFA members who demonstrate the

best use of new media to promote FFA and agricultural education. Mark Copple, a co-worker of Lisa’s in the same FFA division at the time of her passing, has made donations since he began his FFA employment in 2006. In her honor, Copple increased his annual giving to the Stone endowment after previously giving to the Bernie Staller Endowment Fund that awards a scholarship to an FFA member entering college to study agricultural education and who demonstrates financial need. “I always gave money to Bernie’s fund because it helped students with financial difficulties, which is similar to what I donate to my alma mater,” Copple says. “When Lisa and Dan Stone were killed, I increased my donation amount to help fund their memorial scholarship.” FFA employees show a passion and dedication every day to their work that furthers the organization’s reach. That so many go above and beyond to also give back to the organization is indicative of the importance of FFA and agricultural education. – Geoffrey Miller

FFA Chapter Challenge winners gain confidence, while their community gains hope

W

hen the Church Point, La., FFA members entered the 2012 FFA Chapter Challenge, little did they know just how big the upside would be for themselves and their community. The contest was pretty straightforward, according to FFA advisor and Church Point High School agriculture teacher Amber Latiolais. The members interviewed local farmers and ranchers – introducing themselves and chatting a bit about their FFA chapter. In turn, these new contacts were asked to vote online for their chapter, and the one receiving the most votes would win. “We have close to 70 members, and I watched them as they started interviewing, reading from a jotted-down script of questions,” Latiolais says. “I remember one student who was so timid, he could barely take his eyes off the paper he was reading, much less make eye contact with the farmer. But by the time he was on his third and fourth interviews, he was so proud of himself and so confident, he wasn’t even using the script. Now, a year later, we can’t get him to stop talking.” Seeing such a transformation warms her heart, and witnessing the connections kids made with their agricultural community has been doubly rewarding for this former FFA member. “The biggest thing was watching how they bonded with the local ranchers and farmers,” she says. “Often their own

children don’t want to return to take over the family farm once they grow up and move out. So it was uplifting for these older folks to talk to kids who are trying to learn all they can about local agribusiness. “To see these high school students have that kind of interest in what they’re doing – it really lit up their eyes. For them, it was like, ‘Wow! There is hope,’” Latiolais says. Without the FFA Chapter Challenge and the sponsorship support from Monsanto for the program, they may not have made that connection. “It even spurred an FFA Alumni affiliate as a result,” she says. “They have an investment in our kids now, and they want to be involved. It’s a bond our FFA chapter will benefit from for years to come.” The members’ pride is clearly visible. They voted to spend some of the $1,000 award on a chapter set of jackets, so they could confidently fit in at official events. Some of the dollars allowed them to attend convention and camp that they couldn’t otherwise afford. But the pinnacle of their year as Chapter Challenge winners was having the first (in as long as anyone could remember) formal recognition banquet. It was here, in front of their beaming, tearful parents and one extremely proud advisor, that they were awarded activity pins – pins they could now display on their FFA jackets.

“The New Century Farmer Conference was the single most influential conference that I have had the opportunity to be a part of. As someone who is planning to return to the family farm, this conference addressed issues that were very relevant to me and helped me prepare a vision for our farming operation.” – Ryan Augustine, Iowa, 2010 National FFA Foundation | 47

Did you miss Dustin’s story? Really exciting things are happening at FFA. Membership is at an all-time high. More FFA members attended the convention and expo in 2012 than ever before, and more students are studying agricultural education. None of this would be possible without compassionate people like you. And FFA, like all other nonprofits, relies on donor support to survive and thrive. Have you considered becoming more connected to the National FFA Foundation and making an impact in the lives of FFA members? Your support, while directly impacting FFA programming and members, does so much more. Meet Dustin. Dustin is a young high school student who is walking the walk. This young man saw that a close family friend was in need. Undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer for more than two years, Dustin’s family friend needed support and kindness. Dustin knew he had to do something. With values instilled in him by friends, family and FFA, Dustin stepped up. Through planning, hard work and community support, Dustin was able to raise and sell his sheep for nearly $5,000. In honor of his friend, he donated this money to the American Cancer Society.* Every FFA member, like Dustin, memorizes the FFA Creed, but it is what they do with that knowledge, inspiration and wisdom that matters most. FFA members choose to make a meaningful difference. What is so unique about Dustin’s story? While his story is powerful, it is also common. FFA members are truly passionate and are frequently paying it forward. We hope you find comfort in knowing just how far your gift to the National FFA Foundation will reach when it is directly impacting members like Dustin who step up and help others. Will you make a gift today to impact FFA members who make a difference? *This story originally appeared in FFA New Horizons magazine.
