Grow Hope with MCC Alberta!

Grow Hope gives Albertans a way to help end world hunger. 

“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:

When you sponsor an acre of land for $300, the farmers will grow your acre and donate the proceeds to MCC. After harvest, your acre will be worth as much as $500. That money will be matched by the government four to one, which means the $300 you spent to sponsor an acre will turn into as much as $2500!

100% of all proceeds go to help end hunger through MCC and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

Here's how you can join in:

When you sponsor an acre of rural Manitoba farmland for $300, the farmer will grow a crop on the land you’ve sponsored and donate the proceeds. After harvest, your acre will be worth as much as $500. Then, that money will be matched by the government, which means the $300 you gave to sponsor an acre will turn into as much as $2,500.

You can also split an acre with family and friends. Find 3 people to sponsor 1/3 of an acre at $100 and together you can watch your donation grow!

Your gift will feed hungry people by providing emergency food assistance and supporting long-term food security for people around the world.

Saskatchewan

Through Grow Hope Saskatchewan, you can become a farmer by sponsoring an acre of farmland in rural Saskatchewan. Funds raised help MCC support people around the world with emergency food supplies and long-term food security.

The first Saskatchewan project is a unique partnership with the Saskatoon Catholic Diocese and their agency, Development and Peace. Click here to donate to the Catholic Diocese account.

How it works

Generous farmers in the Saskatoon area have donated land and have agreed to grow a crop. It costs $300 per acre to grow the crop - covering the cost of seed, fuel and other inputs.

At the end of the growing season, they will sell the crop and donate the proceeds to CFGB. They expect to sell it for up to $500 per acre. The Government of Canada matches donations up to 4:1, creating a total contribution of up to $400,000 on 160 acres. 

You can be a part of Grow hope by sponsoring a partial acre, full acre or more.
