New York FFA's Oswegatchie Kitchen & Dining Hall

$2,830 of $350,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 12 days
Created January 8, 2019
Want to join me in making a difference? 

Since April of 2018, 251 individual donors have helped us raise $650,000.   Our next benchmark is to raise $350,000 by January 25, 2019.   This effort if successful will bring us to $1 million raised or pledged to support this project.  The time is now to participate. 

Why is this project happening? 

In 2017 NYS made available to the FFA Foundation a $2 million-dollar SAM grant for this project.   The total project is estimated to require $3.3 million to complete.   Since 1946 Oswegatchie has been the Adirondack home of the New York FFA.   The popularity of this camp has grown immensely over the past 20 years, going from a camp with 313 in 1999 to over 844 in 2018.  Current facilities cannot sustain this growth.  This new kitchen and dining hall will insure that Oswegatchie exists for many more generations.   

The first $650,000 has come from donations ranging from $5 to $100,000.   FFA Chapter themselves have pledged more than $125,000.   

We need the thousands of FFA and Oswegatchie Alumni that have not joined us to jump on board today.   Any gift of any amount will make the difference.   What can you do to insure future generations of youth have access to Oswegatchie?
