Indiana Farm Bureau Inc. and Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance donated $25,000 to the Indiana FFA Foundation. This is a match for donations to the Pay It Forward campaign to retire the original loan on the Indiana FFA Leadership Center and continue to build the Give Hope Annuity which is the fund created to help with future capital projects of the Indiana FFA Leadership Center, located in Trafalgar, Ind.

“Few organizations can compare to FFA when it comes to preparing future leaders for our industry,” said Randy Kron, who serves as president of Indiana Farm Bureau Inc. and Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance. “We’re honored to support the place where Indiana’s FFA members learn and are inspired to grow.”

Since the first camp was held in 1974, an estimated 100,000 FFA members have taken advantage of the unique FFA Leadership Center. On that hallowed ground, generations of leaders have been shaped and inspired. For over 40 years Indiana FFA members have been blessed to inherit such a remarkable place to call home.

In the past five years the Leadership Center has been in a place of growth and stability. With the Indiana FFA Foundation investing close to $500,000 in facility capital projects and improvements, the Indiana FFA Leadership Center is excited about their future and what it can offer youth across Indiana.
