Minnesota FFA members, educators and supporters will be gathering virtually this week. Minnesota Foundation Executive Director Val Aarsvold says there are several Foundation events happening. “We’re going to have Zoom events where students can interact and visit with sponsors,” says Aarsvold. “It’s about making that connection. As soon as sponsors understand how their support makes a difference, they see the value and stay engaged.” There is a planned giving event called Planting Seeds, Growing Leaders taking place during the virtual state convention. “This helps people understand how a gift to the FFA Foundation last for years and years to come. It’s so inspiring to see young members have a vision and know they can make a difference.” Aarsvold shares more in this Red River Farm Network interview.
