Thank you for your generous support of Coastal Roots Farm. With your help, we are grateful to work toward our mission to Nourish Community by practicing organic farming, sharing our harvest with those who lack access, delivering unique farm-based educational programs, offering opportunities to connect with Jewish life, and fostering inclusive spaces for people of all backgrounds to come together to connect, learn, and celebrate in ways that catalyze a more vibrant community.
Why We Fundraise
Farm programs are designed to meaningfully benefit the land and the community, from improving the fertility of the Farm’s soil and supporting biodiverse ecosystems, to making sure low-income families have equal and dignified access to fresh, nutrient-dense foods, and providing quality educational opportunities, we seek to foster a healthier community and a more sustainable environmental future for our region. This fundraising toolkit equips our Farm friends and supporters to join us in this important work.
Fundraising Ideas and How To:
Share your passion for the Farm with your online community. Create a Facebook Fundraiser in honor of your birthday or for Giving Tuesday, and invite your friends and family to help you meet your goal.
Change Giving simplifies giving by allowing users to donate their spare change to Fundraising Campaigns with their everyday transactions.
Simply link your credit or debit card to Change Giving and continue your purchases as usual using your debit or credit cards. Change Giving will round up your purchases to the nearest dollar and donate the spare change.
Crowdsource platforms like GoFundMe and others are designed for public, peer-to-peer fundraising. Create an online fundraiser featuring the Farm’s work. You will be amazed how spreading the word among your community can make an impact!
Celebrate or commemorate big moments by donating to a cause you believe in. When friends and family ask how to honor your graduation or support after a loved ones’ passing, consider inviting them to support the Farm in your/their honor.
(It is customary for in the Jewish community to donate in increments of $18. Other ideas: donate the number of years you have been married or add the Farm to your baby registry!)
Coastal Roots Farm is rooted in Jewish values such as Tikkun Olam (repairing the world). Join us by collecting loose change. Every bit helps!
Our pay-what-you-can Farm Stand offers equitable access to organic, nutrient-dense produce and eggs twice a week. One third of customers utilize the pay-what-you-can system while other customers contribute the suggested amount or even donate above. When you shop, consider making an extra donation so that the person behind you can continue taking up to $30 off as needed to feed themselves or their family.
Farm Events are a labor of love produced in partnership with our community. Ticket prices are often suggested donations and -like our Farm Stand produce - are offered on a pay-what-you-can basis. Your ticket purchases support our mission and ensure everyone in our community has access to educational and community building opportunities.
Our popular Sukkot Harvest Festival, Tu B’Shvat Food Forest Festival, and Great Outdoors Shabbat programs engage more than 2,000 people each year. Your tax-deductible donation supports not just the Farm’s Jewish Life initiative, but our greater impact in the community. Your event sponsorship comes with benefits, and your name or company logo will be published on our event website and visible at the event!
