This is an exciting time for us at SFA, because we are starting to see both an increased interest in our programming as well as positive results from the education and farmer networking efforts we’ve undertaken in the past few years. Even large, entrenched corporations are starting to see the benefits of sustainable farming, proving that SFA outreach and education are helping lead farming in the Upper Midwest toward increased sustainability and success.
SFA is an inclusive organization open to all, and we believe that our brand of agriculture is the most positive way forward. That’s why we are happy to announce that we are building a matching fund pool for the upcoming Give to the Max Day, the popular annual fundraiser promoted by GiveMN.org.
As of today, we have raised over $9,000 for a still-growing matching fund on Give to the Max Day. This means that every dollar you donate will be matched by the fund at least up to $9,000 – your $100 donation results in $200 to SFA.
Our goal is to raise $20,000 on Give to the Max Day, and we can’t do it without your support.
This year’s fundraising holiday is officially Nov. 12, but GiveMN has stretched the event – starting Nov. 1, any donation you make through SFA’s page on GiveMN will qualify for the matching fund. That’s right – for 12 full days you can DOUBLE your donation to SFA on our GiveMN homepage. Schedule your donation early and avoid the high-traffic GTM Day fray.
SFA is growing the next generation of farmers who are going to farm in ways that feed our communities good food while improving water and soil quality. We hope to hear from you this November.
We are still raising money for the matching fund as well. If you would like to contribute to this effort, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
