Grange Co-op Donates $10,000 to Oregon FFA Foundation. CENTRAL POINT, OR — Grange Co-op has donated $10,000 to the Oregon FFA Foundation, continuing their strong support of youth and agriculture. The donation is part of a multi-year support partnership with the Oregon FFA Foundation. The check was presented to the State FFA Officers on February 11th, 2016 at the Grange Co-op corporate office. “Grange Co-op is proud to support FFA Students and have a part in their development and education,” stated Norm Rush, Donation Committee Chairman. “FFA students are the future leaders and members of our communities. Grange Co-op is also proud to support FFA by sponsoring the Co-op Quiz at the Oregon FFA State Convention each year, working with our local FFA chapters in Southern Oregon, and attending and purchasing livestock projects at over 6 county fairs in the summer.” "The FFA is very appreciative of support from partners like Grange Co-op. With their support the Oregon FFA has been able to grow our membership to nearly 6,000 members, expand leadership and career opportunities for students and help promote Ag education throughout Oregon. None of this would be possible without supporters like Grange Co-op." said Kevin White, Executive Director, Oregon FFA Foundation. Grange Co-op supports FFA through its sales of Rogue Feed and the Dividend Patronage program. For each bag of Rogue Quality Feed sold at Grange Co-op retail stores, .10₵ is donated to FFA. In addition to this, for every Dividend Patronage program sold, Grange Co-op matches the sign-up fee and donates 100% of the proceeds to FFA, 4H and other youth agricultural programs. Everyone can apply to be a dividend patron. Signing up is easy at any of Grange Co-op’s eight retail stores. The one-time fee is $20, or $15 if the customer belongs to another co-op or credit union. Patrons then enjoy many programs such as the Wild Bird frequent buyer program, and patrons purchasing $500 or more in a calendar year may qualify for a dividend. Additional information is available at www.grangecoop.com. Grange Co-op was founded in 1934 when 99 farmers contributed $10 each to buy property, a truck and gasoline. The Co-op offers high-quality agricultural supplies, farm products, pet supplies, lawn and garden supplies, apparel and footwear, and petroleum products. Grange Co-op works hard to consistently provide exceptional customer service that is both knowledgeable and friendly, while offering competitive pricing and quality products and services.
