At Growing Power, we can’t do the important work of feeding communities and educating our youth without your help. We are a grassroots organization that has a big name associated with it, but still operates on a shoestring budget. We try hard to pay our staff a living wage and to operate on a very conservative budget, but buying seeds and paying teacher-farmers to educate our young people about the food system is an expensive endeavor.
We are asking you for help. We can not do this important work without the support of our incredible community.
We’re asking for our community to become investors in our work.
If you gave at least $5 a month over the next year the impact it would have is a game changer for our organization and the communities were we grow food.
We’re asking you to help us sustain our operating expenses by committing to a monthly gift of $5 a month.
Spare change can make all of the difference — it educates teens living in Chicago, it teaches new growers in Milwaukee, and it makes a world of difference for seniors living in a food desert.
We are encouraging you to give what you can. Small donations can make a huge difference in the lives of the folks we work with. Please consider giving $5, $10 or $25 today, or better yet, setting up a recurring monthly donation.
We can’t do this work alone. Let’s scale up the Good Food Revolution!
Please Spread the Word and ask others to give, along with sharing the hashtag #GP100in100 . As we push to raise $100,000 in monthly donations in 100 days for our operating expenses.
We are forever grateful for your incredible support and generosity over the last 23 years. We couldn’t do this work without the amazing community which sustains us.
Together we are Growing Power.
