Syngenta Crop Protection’s FFA Business Resource Group stood out among a diverse range of entries, showcasing creativity, philanthropy, and creative thinking in the Employee Resource Group category. The judges specifically recognized a friendly fundraising competition between Syngenta divisions, which helped break donation records for the National FFA Foundation.

Syngenta’s resource group set the fundraising target at $25,000, but thanks to a creative inter-company challenge to see which function could raise the most donations, an estimated 240 gifts totaling $103,085 were donated during the 24-hour Give FFA Day fundraising event. This collective financial donation supports the development and education of FFA students and the next generation of ag. This resource group and the creative fundraising tactics won Syngenta US the FFA Alumni Chapter of the Year Award and the Ragan Communications Awards.

"Congratulations to Syngenta Crop Protection,” said Brendan Gannon, Senior Marketing Manager for Awards Programs at Ragan Communications.
