Compeer Financial Again Pledges #GivingTuesday Match
For the third consecutive year, Compeer Financial has pledged a total $7,500 in matching gift support on #GivingTuesday to the FFA Foundations in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Each state will be eligible for up to $2,500 in funds, based on the amount raised on that day. Two previous #GivingTuesday efforts have yielded a combined $16,000 in contributions to the Wisconsin FFA Foundation, due in part to Compeer’s generous matching gifts.
“We’re thrilled and grateful to have this commitment from Compeer Financial again this year, particularly as our agricultural students and educators continue through a challenging year,” says John Hromyak, Wisconsin FFA Foundation executive director. “Compeer’s partnership extends to many areas of our programming, all of which would not be possible without sponsor and donor support. We are thankful for all who join us by financially investing in FFA members and advisors in Wisconsin.”
To meet the generous $2,500 matching pledge goal, the Wisconsin FFA Foundation will be accepting online donations anytime on Tuesday, Dec. 1. Gifts can be made directly on the Foundation’s website: wisconsinaged.org/foundation/donate/.
