If you have ever thought to yourself, I can’t give enough to make a difference, think again!
70 community members are a part of the Sierra Harvest Row-by-Row Monthly Giving Program, contributing between $10 and $100 per month. Their combined contributions total $27,800 per year! This is the very definition of synergy: two or more things working together to create something bigger or greater than the sum of their individual efforts.
What can $10 per month do?
13 Row-by-Row monthly supporters currently give $10 per month, for a combined total of $1,560 per year.
$1,560 provides 87 hours of school garden education. That’s great!
What if 13 additional people signed up at $10 a month, the total would be $3,120 per year. $3,120 would provide 173 hours of garden education over the course of a year.
WOW! That’s even better!
What can $25 per month do?
17 Row by Row monthly supporters currently give $25 per month, for a combined total of $5,100 per year.
$5,100 is about half the budget of the Gold Country Gleaners program, which last year gleaned 28,579 pounds of fresh food and delivered it to Interfaith Food Ministry.
What if 17 additional people signed up for $25 per month for a combined total of $10,200, we could pay our harvest leaders a stipend and bring our gleaning totals up significantly.
Your monthly donation to Sierra Harvest can’t do it alone, but when you join with others, more students get their hands in the dirt, more food is gleaned and delivered to our local food pantry, and more farmers get critical training. It’s a community effort.
Row-by-Row monthly giving lends stability, and sustainability, to the Sierra Harvest programs that yield results. It is an effortless way to donate small amounts over time, avoid transaction fees if done through electronic funds transfer, and make a significant impact in our community.
