Disaster Relief      
Texans have seen the devastation Hurricane Harvey has and continues to cause along the Gulf Coast and throughout Southeast Texas. This significant weather event has caused damage and flooding to homes, farms, schools, roads and cities. Members of the Agricultural Education Family in Texas and across the nation have asked how they can help FFA chapters and agricultural education programs that have been hit hard by this tragedy. The Texas FFA Association/Texas Team Ag Ed will seek to provide the most up-to-date information on the relief efforts from this event.

A New Day: Texas Agricultural Education Disaster Relief Fund      
This fund will help FFA chapters and agricultural education programs rebuild following natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey. Donations to this fund will be dispersed via an application process directly to the programs and chapters affected by the storm. This is our chance to show the country and the world how much Texans and the Agricultural Education Family care about each other.

A donation to the “A New Day: Texas Agricultural Education Disaster Relief Fund” can be made HERE.

You can also send a check or money order to:

Texas FFA Foundation
Attn: A New Day Crisis Fund
614 E. 12th Street
Austin, TX 78701

Please make checks payable to the Texas FFA Foundation and write “A New Day Crisis Fund” in the memo section of the check or money order. Donations are tax deductible.

If your program/chapter is in need of support from the A New Day Crisis Relief Fund, please apply HERE.
