The New York FFA Foundation is by its very nature a "grassroots organization". While it does have an endowment, fundraising events throughout the year makes a major part of its operational finances. Its ownership of the Oswegatchie Educational Center allows the foundation to save money by utilizing Oswegatchie's equipment, manpower, and supplies to be even more effective with our foundation resources. Any funds raised by special events or campaigns, is used directly to support FFA members. The events listed below are the main efforts made by the New York FFA Foundation.
Oswegatchie may not be considered a fundraising event, but every dollar earned by Oswegatchie for lodging and programs, go directly back into the facility and program, By keeping Ag and FFA events, groups, and students using the facility, keeps those funds inside our ag community and makes efforts more fruitful.
