With school recently back in session, many students throughout our state will be donning their blue jackets for a variety of FFA events. This great youth leadership program continues to yield a wonderful crop of future leaders every year. But success doesn't happen overnight, and it doesn't happen without your support.
To help in the cause, the Utah FFA Foundation has rolled out the 'Commit to Ten' giving program, which is an excellent and convenient way for ANYONE to donate money to the Utah FFA Foundation! Through this program, individuals & families can commit to giving ANY dollar amount of your choice for 10 months by visiting https://bit.ly/2XI8ygJ. For example, if you choose to give $10 for ten months, your contribution will amount to $100.00. All donations are tax deductible and proceeds from this program support the Utah FFA.
An extra way to support the Utah FFA is through shopping that you already do on Amazon.com, through a program is called Amazon Smile. To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. Then search & selecting 'Utah Future Farmers of America Foundation'. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. The 0.5% contribution does not increase your Amazon purchase price, but instead is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you.
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible. As opposed to the 'Commit to Ten' program, donations in this program are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.
