Each month, TLC Farm requires at least $3000 just to keep its doors open. That's for TLC Farm's portion (1/3) of the mortgage on the land, for insurance, utilities, and basic supplies. This does not include salaries or costs for special projects. We rely on donations from our generous supporters - like you - for that money. Help keep TLC Farm thriving! We particularly invite you to become a Friend of the Farm, a regular contributor on a monthly or annual basis. (Of course, you're always welcome to just make a one-time donation, as well.)

Matching Gifts

Donate Stock or Securities

A gift of appreciated securities (such as stock, bonds, and mutual funds) can provide tax savings at the same time you make your gift to TLC Farm. In addition to your tax deduction on the full market value of the stock, you can avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the gift. For this reason, many people find that they're able to make a larger gift by using appreciated securities instead of cash. See a tax adviser for details.
