Crossroads Farm’s Challenge Grant
 
 
We need your support today to operate Crossroads Farm tomorrow!

Crossroads Farm is very fortunate to have been offered a $35,000 challenge grant from an anonymous donor. It must be matched by 12/31/2017.  In other words, every dollar you donate to this effort will be matched dollar for dollar up to $35,000 – whatever you give will be doubled. Anything we raise above our $70,000 goal will be dedicated to our 2018 operating budget.  

We receive no public funding and depend on private contributions to meet the farm’s $300,000 annual operating budget.  Having raised about $230,000 to date, we need your help to raise the $70,000 balance.
 
 If you’d like to donate to to the Challenge Grant, please click here.

Please make your tax-deductible donation today.  The challenge grant is an amazing limited-time offer to double the impact of your gift.  Crossroads Farm is a project of the Nassau Land Trust, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation.
