How to Give

Finding the time and the budget to give to our cause is possible. Here’s how.

Choosing a giving level

Every donation, big and small, has an enormous impact on our ability to serve the community.

  • $5 a month creates a consistent stream of community support to expand and explore the many possibilities of the Kearsarge Food Hub's educational, farm, market, and kitchen programs.

  • $10 a month provides one local student with a hands-on educational farming experience, nurturing a love of nature and creating an appreciation for the local food system and healthy, local eating.

  • $25 a month supports the health and growth of one local farm by offering access to the distribution, marketing, sales, and support infrastructure operated by Kearsarge Food Hub.

  • $50 a month provides one semester of research and development on Sweet Beet Farm in partnership with Colby-Sawyer College to explore how to nourish the land through regenerative farming practices.

  • $100 a month allows Kearsarge Food Hub to expand its food security initiatives by providing greater access to farm fresh produce to neighbors in need. 

Finding the time

With our monthly giving program, your contribution is automatically transferred from your bank account to ours each and every month. You set up your gift only once. With this stream of income, we can carry out our mission and serve our community with no inconvenience to you. It’s a win win!

Budgeting to give

Through the Grow With US Monthly Giving Program, you can make a big impact with a budget comparable to what many of us regularly allot to common goods and services.

  • Streaming Services: Netflix and Amazon cost between $9 and $16 a month. For the price of enjoying your favorite media, you can contribute to creating positive change in our local food system that benefits the whole world.

  • Trash Removal: People pay good money to have their waste removed from their homes. This service can cost anywhere from $10 to $50 a month. That level of support for our work makes a big difference to us.

  • Monthly Coffee Budget: If you purchase coffee out every day of the work week, you’re likely spending anywhere from $10 to $25 per week on sweet, sweet caffeine. If you can give up just a few days of this, you could easily have an extra $30 per month to support our mission.

  • Other Nonprofit Gifts: Nonprofits exist because of the generosity of their supporters. The average NPR one-time gift is $61 on an annual basis. If you translate that to a recurring monthly gift that would be about $5 per month.
