An endowment is a wonderful way to establish a legacy. The principal amount is never spent, thus ensuring the perpetuity of the gift and that your support of the Ohio FFA lives on.
When establishing an endowment, we offer several options through which you can help select the criteria for its impact. Endowed gifts require no minimum donation and are used to support the overall mission of the Ohio FFA Foundation. Gifts of $10,000 can be designated to a committee to award at their discretion. With an endowed gift of more than $25,000, the Ohio FFA Foundation will manage the fund and ensure it is used in perpetuity for your intended purpose. Payments can be made in a lump sum or over a specific time period scheduled with the Executive Director.
Please contact Jessica Parrish, firstname.lastname@example.org, for information on endowment options or making it part of your estate plans.
