“This is such an amazing campaign. I loved getting updates from the farm about how my acre was doing." - Cindy Klassen
Here's how it works:
For every $300, an acre of land is sponsored. Farmers will grow this acre and donate the proceeds to MCC's Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) account. After harvest, this acre could be worth as much as $500, depending on grain prices. That money gets matched by the government up to 4:1. This means the original $300 can turn into as much as $2500!
You can sponsor a full acre, or choose to sponsor a quarter, a half, or multiple acres of Alberta farmland. You can also grow hope with family and friends! Make a Grow Hope giving registry and invite your loved ones and community to help you raise funds to sponsor one or more acres.
100% of proceeds go to help support long-term food security and emergency food aid programs through MCC and CFGB.
