Kentucky FFA Foundation Distributes Funds Across the State

ffa KYFRANKFORT, Ky. (10/15/13) – Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer has pioneered the Kentucky Farm License Plate Program, allowing Kentucky FFA and 4-H to directly benefit from the sale of Ag Tag’s. When a person is purchasing a Kentucky Farm License plate, they have the opportunity to donate $10, which is divided equally between Kentucky FFA, Kentucky 4-H and Kentucky Proud.
 
The FFA share for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 was $160,895.06, a $39,186.42 increase from the 2012 fiscal year. The Kentucky FFA Foundation distributes half of the funds generated from a county back to the FFA chapters in that county. The half retained by the Kentucky FFA Foundation is used to support a variety of state level programs.
 
“When Kentucky farmers renew their farm license plates, they can add a voluntary $10 donation that will be split evenly among these three fine organizations,” said Commissioner Comer, a former state FFA president. “FFA and 4-H give Kentucky’s young people opportunities to participate in constructive activities while they learn the value of hard work and discipline. Kentucky Proud helps Kentucky producers find new markets for their products. All three programs are vital to the future of Kentucky agriculture and Kentucky as a whole.”
 
In Hopkins County, 21.99 % of those purchasing farm plates are also making the $10 contribution. Kentucky FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of more than 14,000 students through premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agriculture education, including those here in Hopkins County at Hopkins County Central and Madisonville North Hopkins High Schools. If you are purchasing or renewing your farm plates this year, we encourage you to show your support for FFA and make the $10 contribution.
