Special Opportunity: Founding Donors
Make a tax-deductible financial contribution before December 31, 2017 and become a “Founding Donor” of the Grain Place Foundation. Your gifts will support farm operations, and help us establish educational and scientific programs to enhance the legacy of a pioneering organic farm.
Your tax-deductible financial contribution each year makes you a Friend of the Foundation, and you will both receive periodic updates via email and be listed on the annual report of donors.
Mail your gift to: Grain Place Foundation, 1906 N. Hwy 14, Marquette, NE 68854 or give online.
Read more about how your donations play a meaningful role in our work.
Job Openings : The Grain Place Foundation is always looking for people who share a passion for organic farming, want to learn more about our farm, and are good with machines. (Our farm requires working with lots of unusual and particular equipment…) We hope to expand the work of the Foundation as we share what we have learned and communicate our enthusiasm for our strange way of farming.
Internships and Scientific Study: We are seeking partner institutions and organizations to help us organize study programs and further scientific research in regenerative agriculture. Please contact us if you are interested in partnering with us.
Volunteer: We are also working on additional ways to utilize volunteers in both foundation and farm work. Let us know what you might be interested in doing, or if you have farm or office equipment or supplies that you think we might be able to use and would like donate.
Wear or Carry our Message : Purchase organic cotton clothing and reusable drinkware from our webstore so you can carry our message with you into the world. We also receive a portion of the proceeds from each purchase.
Large Gifts : We have dreams of expanding the work of our Foundation with additional staff, education opportunities and more. Most of the initial significant donations have come as gifts of the ownership of The Grain Place, from the Vetter family. This gives us the land and soil. All our annual operating expenses, though, come from your donations. A large gift would enable us to take a leap forward with our mission. We would love to talk with you about these possibilities.
Spread the Word: Beyond financial support we appreciate your moral support and encourage you to spread the word about us. Use the form below to join our emailing list. Follow us on Facebook, too.
