Donations are result of the ag lender’s first Fore FFA charity golf tournament
WICHITA, Kan. (Feb. 26, 2020) – In honor of National FFA Week, Feb. 22-29, 2020, Rabo AgriFinance announces more than $10,000 in donations to seven local FFA chapters in Kansas. The ag lender organized and hosted the Fore FFA Golf Tournament, which raised the funds for the donations. All the money raised, after tournament expenses, went directly to the FFA chapters.
Thirteen teams competed in the tournament in October at the Golf Club at Southwind near Garden City, Kansas. “What started as a plan to host clients for the day in southwest Kansas turned into an event for a good cause with huge support from other local business and agricultural employers,” said Mark Sorensen, senior relationship manager with Rabo AgriFinance.
Winning teams of the tournament selected local FFA chapters to receive the donations. Rabo AgriFinance employees delivered donation checks to chapters in: Ashland, Garden City, Maize, Randolph, Scott City, Syracuse and Tribune.
“Our first try at a golf tournament in Kansas was a huge success. We had a great turnout both financially and by number of golfers. It speaks to our community’s passion for the future of agriculture,” said Gretchen White, a managing director for Rabo AgriFinance. “We are hopeful that the money donated has a significant impact for the young adults engaged in the FFA chapters.”
Since its inception in 1928, FFA has developed and shaped generations of business leaders and advocates of agriculture. A leading financial services producer for agricultural producers in the United States, Rabo AgriFinance supports the mission of FFA through gifts of time, talent and financial resources at the local, state and national levels.

Adapting to technology on the farm will be key to future success says #RaboResearch Farm Inputs Analyst Sam Taylor. Digital tools such as artificial intelligence that alert farmers to be preemptive about pest treatments can curb crop damage and save money. https://t.co/LEadyTfCwi
