Root Cause Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to eliminate food insecurity and nourish the hungers in each of us. Our donors are partners who share our belief in this valuable work. Together, we will continue to help strengthen others through cultivating food and knowledge. As stated on the sign at the entrance to the garden: “There are many types of hunger. Everyone is hungry for something. Everyone has something to give."

Perennial Growers Program

To secure our impact for years to come, please consider joining our Perennial Growers Program - RCF’s recurring gift program. 
Perennial plants, once started, return regularly with little maintenance. Our Perennial Growers Program does the same with your donation. By enrolling, you spread out your donation evenly over time, and these regular gifts provide us with a steady revenue stream to sustain our impact.

For help in deciding if the Perennial Growers Program is right for you, here are some more details:

    • Perennial Growers are donors who give financial gifts at regular intervals (such as monthly or quarterly) from year to year, providing RCF with a sustaining revenue stream to support us throughout the year and into the future.
    • Recurring gifts can be in any amount. Whatever amount is possible for you makes a big impact for us. And we appreciate it!
    • Automatic, recurring gifts via credit card or bank draft are easiest for most donors and may be set up online via our donate link. Checks are an option as well.

Thank you for your support!
