  CLARIFICATION - 2020-2021 Local Collection Drive Deadline

CLARIFICATION - 2020-2021 Local Collection Drive Deadline 

*This message was sent to all contacts

With the January 31st Local Collection Drive deadline quickly approaching, I wanted to take a minute to provide some more clarification on the deadline and the Local Collection Drive. The Illinois Foundation FFA accepts donations all year. The Foundation’s fiscal year begins July 1st and ends June 30th. That said, the FFA Chapter will receive credit for the current (2020-2021) Local Collection Drive for all donations made until June 30, 2021. However, in order to be recognized during the 93rd Annual Illinois FFA State Convention, donations must be postmarked no later than January 31, 2021. 

Please note, an FFA Chapter’s Hopper Fund balance is calculated after the end of the Foundation's fiscal year. That said, the Chapter’s Hopper Fund balance will include all donations made on behalf of the Chapter from July 1, 2020 until June 30, 2021. 

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact Riley Duckworth, or Tammy Yard,

****Don’t Forget****

  • While the Illinois Foundation FFA accepts donations all year, contributions must be received by January 31, 2020, to be included in recognition at the state convention and for reporting purposes at the Illinois Foundation FFA Annual meeting.

  • Hopper Funds must be used by July 30th, 2021.

  •  To request donor recognition certificates, visit and fill out the 2020-2021 certificate request form. The certificate request form must be submitted at least 2-3 weeks prior to the date the certificates will be distributed by the FFA Chapter.
