IA Foundation for Agricultural Advancement
Each year, thousands of Iowa students participate in 4-H and FFA beef, swine, poultry and other agricultural projects. With the help of partners like Iowa 4-H and FFA Organizations along with the many donors, IFAA is able to provide merit-based financial awards to hundreds of those participating students every year looking to continue their study of agriculture within our state.
The original mission was simply to provide a base level of funds to support the sale of grand and reserve champion projects for the major species at a premium. After years of success growing the Sale of Champions into the envy of many state fairs around the country, IFAA expanded giving to include scholarship programs and performance awards in order to reach more youth.
Today, the IFAA offers over $200,000 per year in scholarships funded by groups such as the Governor of Iowa, Bruce Rastetter, Sinclair Tractor, Cargill, Rain and Hail Insurance, HyVee, Fareway, and ISF Beef Champion Supporters to name a few. Support for the IFAA Sale of Champions and subsequent scholarship and awards programs has steadily grown from $50,000 in the first year to nearly $725,000 today.
