Big Day of Giving

California Farmland Trust works to promote agriculture education, protect family farms and preserve agriculture for generations to come. Yet our impact is so much more than the sum of our parts. Our efforts educate the future about the value of farmland in California, while providing sustainable, agriculture-friendly environmental solutions, that ensure our farmers, and family farms continue to grow the food that feeds the world.

The Big Day of Giving on May 5, is an annual 24-hour initiative to grow philanthropy. As we embark on the Big Day of Giving to build a greater future, we ask you to join us. Together, we can redefine the future of California farmland, our environment and our food supply. 

We hope we can count on your support on May 6, for the Big Day of Giving. Donate online at:
