Landmark Services Cooperative has generously made a donation to the Wisconsin FFA Foundation
that will benefit over 19,000 Wisconsin FFA student members across the state. Landmark’s donation as a Platinum Leadership Partner supports FFA members in a variety of ways throughout the year, including: scholarships, conferences, and programming to help promote excellent leadership skills.
Wisconsin FFA is giving thanks to all generous donors, including Landmark Services Cooperative. With membership at the highest level in 30 years, the increased financial support through the Wisconsin FFA Foundation has enabled programming growth to accommodate more members, program additions and enhancements, and maintained affordability for member participation. The Foundation celebrated a milestone of achieving over $500,000 in support funds raised last year, which is an important achievement as it provides a platform for future organizational growth.
“The FFA organization represents a strong future for agriculture and rural America,” notes Shannon Horstmeyer, executive assistant and ‘Landmark Gives Back’ coordinator at Landmark Services Cooperative. “We are committed to building a strong future for our members and our communities.”
The growth of Wisconsin FFA is timely with regards to the increased opportunities for youth to pursue respectable careers as part of the multi-faceted farm to fork system. The organization equips its members with all the tools necessary for success – technical knowledge, transferrable work skills, leadership and character traits and practical experiences.
The Wisconsin FFA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, unites individuals, organizations and companies who share a common interest in the advancement of agriculture and community leadership through FFA. You can support today’s FFA members by supporting the programs that have been core tenets of the FFA: proficiency awards, career development events, state FFA degrees, sectional leadership workshops, scholarships, chapter awards, agri-science fair, state FFA convention and state officer support.
