  2. 2. 2 0 1 2 - 2 0 1 3 A Word From our Sponsors “As FFA continues to provide strong leadership and aspiring agriculturalists, it is a relationship we can’t put a price on.” — Darrell Billings, FFA Foundation Board of Trustee & RAM Dealer Dear Friends, ! Kentucky FFA has seen many big changes in 2012-2013. Members of State Staff retired, and we welcomed new faces. Dr. Kristie Guffey is the Director of the KY FFA Leadership Training Center and Sheldon McKinney is now serving as the Executive Director of the KY FFA Foundation. It has been an exciting transition, and has brought many positive changes to KY FFA. ! Other noteworthy changes would include the very first Ag Tag campaign, championed by Agriculture Commissioner James Comer. Supporters can donate $10 to the Ag Tag fund when purchasing a KY Farm License Plate. This donation is divided equally between FFA, 4H, and KY Proud. KY FFA distributes half of the donations back to the county where they originated. This program makes 2 an impact on the state & local level. We thank those who supported us! ! Sponsorships also totaled to a record breaking year! Companies & individuals gave more than $180,000 to support Kentucky FFA! We have also had a surge in individual giving with nearly twenty new Century Club members. ! The KY FFA Foundation & the Kentucky FFA Leadership Training Center have ! a l s o partnered to gather in-kind donations of food to be served in the cafeteria. This has been an exciting partnership that has also educated our students about the food production here in Kentucky. ! For the very first time, an individual has endowed a gift to the Kentucky FFA Foundation! Mr. Glenn & Maggie Stith have created an endowment that will pay for the expenses of more than 120 students to attend the Washington Leadership Conference annually, half of which must be from Kentucky! Glenn is from Meade County, a former Kentucky FFA President, a graduate of the University of Kentucky who made a very successful career with Monsanto. ! The Kentucky FFA Foundation makes it possible for our supporters to make an investment in the future of Kentucky Agriculture. We are so proud of the work of our students, and the support our sponsors give them. Thank you for being a part of this vital mission. We look forward to a prosperous 2013-2014! Sincerely, Matt London Chair, Kentucky FFA Foundation, 2013-2016 Sheldon McKinney Executive Director 2012-2013 Kentucky FFA Foundation Annual Report

  9. 9. 2 0 1 2 - 2 0 1 3 First Legacy Gift Designated to Kentucky FFA Glenn & Maggie Stith plan endowment to impact thousands of Kentucky FFA members for years to come. The Kentucky FFA Foundation is excited to announce that the first lifetime gift has been made. Not only is it the first for our State, but it’s the largest endowment in National FFA history. ! For over 35 years, Glenn Stith has assumed leadership positions in the field of agriculture seed, crop protection and biotech business sales along with marketing design & structure. He served as the Vice-President of US Branded Business for Seeds, Biotech Traits and Chemistry and Global Lead of Seminis Vegetable Seeds at Monsanto. After retiring in 2010, he is now a Senior Associate with the Context Network. He has a BS in Agriculture Economics from the University of Kentucky and an executive MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. Stith attributes much of his career success to leadership, teamwork and communication skills he learned in FFA. ! Stith grew up on a farm in Meade County, and became an FFA member in high school. He served as Kentucky FFA State President in 1972-73. Since being a member, he has continued to give back 2012-2013 Kentucky FFA Foundation Annual Report to FFA. He has served as Chair of the National FFA Foundation’s Sponsors Board, a member of the Board of Trustees, and the Individual Giving Council, where he will assume a leadership position as chair in October 2013. ! Mr. Stith & his wife Maggie, have committed the first endowed gift with special focus and direct benefit to Kentucky FFA. It is also the largest endowed gift that the National FFA Foundation has ever received. When his estate plans are executed, approximately 110 FFA members will receive full scholarships to attend the Washington Leadership Conference and additional funds to cover travel expenses. Half of all scholarships given will be reserved for Kentucky FFA members. This endowment will provide the scholarships annually in perpetuity. ! The Washington Leadership Conference is a five day event held in Washington, D.C. It teaches FFA members how to become effective leaders by teaching them to know their purpose, value people, take action and serve others. National FFA says, “Students leave WLC with the knowledge and confidence to act in ways that help their schools, community and country.” ! The Kentucky FFA Foundation cannot thank Glenn & Maggie Stith enough for this tremendous gift that will benefit thousands of KY FFA members and for leading the way for legacy gifts and endowments to Kentucky FFA. Legacy Gifts are future gifts to charity. Contributions can be made by will, trust, other forms of written designation, life-income arrangements and endowment gifts. It can be as simple as designating a savings account to the Kentucky FFA Foundation. It’s a great way for an individual to leave a powerful legacy of giving and generosity to an organization that they love. If interested in planning a gift, the Kentucky FFA Foundation has many services in place to help you and your family through that process. 9
