We would love the opportunity to host you at one of our annual events - golf outings, annual convention or career show! They all offer the opportunity for interaction between the Wisconsin FFA Foundation, our supporters and our top-notch Wisconsin FFA members.

Golf Outings

Our three annual golf outings are a fun way to support Wisconsin FFA Foundation while receiving local visibility. They feature a diverse attendance make-up – local chapters and alumni, businesses, farmers, etc. Some even use it as a customer-appreciation opportunity while showcasing support of FFA.
