Titan International Inc. raised $91,481 in 2018 for several Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters from special event tire auctions. The company has hosted the auctions for more than 20 years.
The auctions in 2018 supported FFA chapters in Iowa, Nebraska and Georgia. The public is given the opportunity to purchase thousands of Titan- and Goodyear-brand farm tires with all of the proceeds benefiting their state FFA organization.
“Through Titan’s incredible generosity, more than $25,000 was raised to help FFA and agricultural education programs that would not have been funded without this support,” says Josh Remington, executive director of the Iowa FFA Foundation. “With a record membership of more than 15,000 Iowa FFA members, each dollar is stretched to the fullest to provide maximum support for these students and helps us eliminate all financial barriers. This ensures each student can develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Developing the next generation of agricultural leaders is possible because of the investment Titan makes in Iowa FFA.” “Titan is proud to recognize FFA’s commitment to developing future leaders,” says Scott Sloan, agricultural products manager for Titan and Goodyear farm tires. “The tire auctions are our way of giving back. We raise money for a commendable organization, plus growers get the chance to bid on a variety of farm tires at a highly discounted price.”
