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, farmers will grow your acre and donate the proceeds to MCC's Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) account. After harvest, your acre will be worth as much as $500. That money gets matched by the government 4:1. This means the $300 you spent to sponsor an acre will turn into as much as $2500!

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.

The World Food Programme is estimating that the number of people facing crisis levels of hunger in the world could double due to COVID-19.

Lockdowns and economic downturns related to COVID-19 are causing already vulnerable people to lose their jobs and livelihoods and are in need of immediate help. You can support vulnerable people in need of food assistance through Grow Hope.

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! 

Consider starting a Giving Registry so that you can invite more family and friends to Grow Hope with you. Read these instructions and then click here to create your registry. 

Your gift will feed hungry people by providing emergency food assistance and supporting long-term food security for people around the world, help that's needed now more than ever.

How it works

Generous farmers in Saskatchewan have donated land and agreed to grow a crop for Grow Hope Saskatchewan. It costs $300 per acre to provide seed, fertilizer, fuel and other inputs. You are invited to sponsor a partial acre, full acre or multiple acres to help cover these costs.

After harvest, the farmers will sell the crop and donate the proceeds to Canadian Foodgrains Bank. The proceeds from the sale of the crop can be as much as $500 per acre. The government of Canada matches funds up to 4:1, creating a total contribution of up to $762,500 on 305 acres. That’s $2,500 per acre!

In other words, a donation of $300 can grow in value up to $500, and then be matched up to $2,500 per acre. That’s like spinning straw into gold to create a world without hunger in the developing world. Learn more on our new website by clicking here!
