Make a Holiday Donation Help Grow a School Garden

The holiday season may be a time for getting, but it is also a time for giving, especially to charity. Help us create and sustain an edible garden in schools by making a holiday donation to Western Growers Foundation.

Holiday donations can be a great way to give back – and you can also get a tax benefit! There 11 days left in this tax year and it’s not too late to donate.

Your tax-deductible donation gets us closer to our goal of creating and sustaining an edible garden in every California and Arizona school. It only takes $1,500 to provide a garden to a school. Any amount will help more children learn about farming, nutrition and healthy eating.

Through sponsored gardens, selected curriculum and hands-on learning in the gardens, students will learn about the science of how seeds become salads, the technology available to enhance plant growth, the engineering behind farm equipment, and the math to calculate how much water is needed for optimal yield. To date, Western Growers Foundation has awarded more than 1,080 grants.

In addition funding school gardens, the Foundation helps sustains Western Growers Careers in Ag Program – an effort to encourage college students to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers within the agricultural industry.

Western Growers Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit recognized by the IRS. Tax ID Number: 931201791.
