As a member-powered non-profit, we know generosity changes communities. The 5,000+ supporters of MFT – Mainers, farmers, local food enthusiasts, and you – make our land protection projects possible, keep FarmLink up-to-date on available farmland, and help farmers grow their businesses.
#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. On December 2, 2014 folks from around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. We are most excited that you have an incredible opportunity to create an impact this giving season: when you support MFT’s Securing a Future for Farming Campaign on #GivingTuesday, your donations will be doubled!
We recently launched our largest campaign ever, Securing a Future for Farming. This campaign will raise funds to:
- protect 100,000 acres of Maine’s farmland
- provide 1,000 farm families with individualized services and support.
That’s the impact we believe necessary to ensure farming stays a viable and vibrant part of Maine’s economy well into our future.
They are big goals, but we are on our way. To date, MFT has helped protect over 40,000 acres of farmland and provided services and support to more than 500 farm families. To ensure farming has a bright future in Maine we are working to protect more farmland, help farmers thrive, and increase access to local food.
It’s going to take a whole lot of hard work to make this happen. And we will need a dedicated community of people who are passionate about Maine food and farms. This year, on #GivingTuesday, will you start a monthly donation to Securing a Future for Farming? Two generous donors will match your monthly donations, doubling your impact and providing sustaining support for land protection, farmer services, and programs that will grow a bright future for farming. Maine could become New England’s food basket. With your help, it will.
Put #GivingTuesday, December 2, on your calendar and think about how your contribution of $10/month could change the future for farming in Maine.
