(NAFB.com) – Tractor Supply Company announced the results of its ninth annual Grants for Growing fundraiser to support FFA chapters across the country. From February 14 to March 3, customers and team members generated over $1 million through the purchase of FFA paper emblems at checkouts in stores and online. The funds raised will support middle school and high school FFA chapters that are developing project-based or experiential learning opportunities. “We’re proud to support FFA’s transformative education programs that have such a profound impact on students nationwide,” says Kimberly Gardiner, chief marketing officer for TSC. The Grants for Growing Fund supports projects with grants up to $5,000 in one of three focus areas: Grow Your Classroom, Grow Your FFA Chapter, and Grow Your Ag Awareness. To get funding, FFA advisors can submit applications at FFA.org. Submissions must include a detailed proposal for a project supporting developing future agricultural leaders and the larger community.
