Donate Funds

A monetary donation is a great way to help those in need in our community. No matter the size, your gift will offer vital support to those who are struggling. We are committed to being excellent stewards of our resources; we operate with a very limited staff, supported by dedicated volunteers. 91% of our budget goes to programming.

Harvest Stand Ministries is a 501(c)3 charitable agency. All gifts to our ministry are tax-deductible.

    “We were able to give out healthy and fresh vegetables in a way that we were otherwise unable to do. On top of the health benefits, the program also added a lot to our sense of community.”

    Tom Eggleston, Saint Francis de Sales Parish

    “This program has been a godsend! The timing could not have been better. It helped the farm defray expenses, keep workers employed, and let us get food to people in need.”

    Bruce Michael Wilson, Groundswell Community Farms

    The staff are very friendly and ready to help without judgement.
