On this Veterans Day weekend, we at Crossroads Farm remember the service of our veterans, and are grateful for the sacrifices they have made for our freedom and country.
Crossroads Farm’s Challenge Grant: We Need Your Help!
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.
