This month, Tractor Supply Company stores in Missouri will collect donations during National FFA Week to support grants for MO FFA chapters. Donations will fund the Grants for Growing program, designed to support FFA chapters that want to create or expand upon a unique, sustainable agricultural project.

Tractor Supply customers can donate $1 or more at checkout Feb. 16-25 while shopping in-store, online at or by calling Customer Solutions at (877) 718-6750. The program is coordinated through a partnership with the National FFA Foundation and Tractor Supply.

Since its start in 2016, Grants for Growing has raised more than $1.4 million for the National FFA Organization. The initiative has funded a total of 692 grants supporting projects involving more than 69,000 students.

Grants, awarded to winning FFA chapter initiatives in the spring, have a minimum value of $500 and a maximum value of $5,000. All donations remain within the state in which they were raised.
