Make Your Donation Count, Twice!

Five years ago, Almond Board of California’s Almond Leadership Program participants launched a silent auction hosted at The Almond Conference to raise funds for the California FFA Foundation. Proceeds provide scholarships for graduating FFA students planning to pursue a degree in agriculture. Since 2016, this collaboration has raised nearly $150,000.

In an ongoing effort to support the California FFA Foundation, the current Almond Leadership Program class is once again putting their support behind agricultural education and has committed to a goal of $20,000. Every dollar raised by the silent auction, up to $25,000, will be matched by Almond Conference Emerald sponsor, Qcify!

Please consider supporting the California FFA Foundation by donating an item for the silent auction. This year’s Almond Conference is December 7-9, 2021, in Sacramento at the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center. The silent auction is held over the course of three days with different silent auction items each day. We would be honored to feature an item from your company for our attendees to bid on and the winner to enjoy.

In return for your generosity, we will assure your business receives valuable recognition at the auction table at The Almond Conference. Most importantly, you will feel good knowing the proceeds from this event support the next generation of California agricultural leaders.

On behalf of the Almond Board of California’s Almond Leadership Program, thank you for your consideration of this request. Here is a link to the donation form to submit an item. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ann Friedrich at or 209.343.3241.
