Urban farms are not about how many you feed, but how you feed them.

Now, more than ever, the world need healthy, knowledgeable, caring individuals, armed with the experience and understanding to build a smart, equitable and sustainable food system.  Your donation to CKC will help endow the next generation of workers, voters, consumers, and innovators with the tools and knowledge they need to solve the agricultural challenges of tomorrow.

BECOME A SUSTAINING DONOR

The Charles Koiner Conservancy for Urban Farming (EIN: 83-1145521) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit.  All donations to CKC are tax deductible to the extent of the law.

Urban farms connect us to our food, our land and our neighbors.

We believe that farms should be like parks... one in every neighborhood! 

 

CKC is working to create a network of neighborhood farms that support a more equitable and sustainable local food system.  To do this, we need the support of our community. Sustaining donors are critical to any nonprofit, but particularly to a small conservancy, like CKC, which is committed to preserving and maintaining urban farms in perpetuity.   

 

To become a sustaining donor, check kthe PayPal box that says "Make this a monthly donation."

​We hope you will join the movement to build a stronger, more resilient local food system that feeds us all.  Here are some ways you can help...

  • Amazon Smile: Select CKC Farming as your Amazon Smile charity of choice.  You can find us by searching "CKC Farming" or entering our EIN (83-1145521) at www.smile.amazon.com.

  • Facebook Fundraiser: Launch a Facebook Fundraiser on behalf of CKC Farming.  We are a young organization and need help growing our social media presence.  Introducing CKC to your friends and family with a Facebook Fundraiser would make a big difference to our small organization. 

  • GroupRaise: Invite your friends and family to a local GroupRaise registered restaurant and request that CKC Farming receive a percent of the restaurant's evening proceeds.  Contact kate@groupraise.org for details.

  • Corporate Giving: Introduce CKC Farming to your company's corporate giving program.  CKC offers a lot of highly visible sponsorship opportunities, plus an outdoor space for company volunteer days.
