We are entering the giving season, and with holiday celebrations, office parties, year-end fundraising drives, and Give to the Max Day, it’s easy to feel pulled in several directions at once. If you are being asked to give, donate, or share, it’s an indication you are valued as a partner, friend, associate or supporter.
That’s certainly how we feel about our partners at SFA. We value everyone who contributes to building the kind of food and farming system we all want to see:
- A system which actually has the potential to mitigate climate change rather than contribute to it
- One where the environment, animals and people are made better, not run down
- A diverse system of farms and farmers who can truly feed the world AND improve the environment
The purpose of SFA’s fundraising efforts is not to keep SFA running, it’s to address these important issues. If you are concerned about clean soil and water, our Midwest Soil Health Summit is preparing current farmers to farm clean. If you are concerned about the growing need for new farmers, our Deep Roots Program is preparing the next generation of farmers to farm clean.
Finally, with SFA’s matching fund in place this year, your donation is going to be worth double!
