1. Give a Gift of Hope
Support an uplifting project in honor of someone special and we'll send a free card to acknowledge your gift. It's the perfect alternative gift! We offer three meaningful projects to choose from and gifts can be sent via email or postal mail. 

2. Is it your birthday?
Every birthday can be a chance to give back. Dedicate your birthday to forests and farming families through Gifts of Hope or a birthday fundraiser on Facebook.

3. Follow us on social media
Did you know we're on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube? In addition to following us (which we hope you will!) you can help nurture a charitable community every time you like, love, share, or comment on a Sustainable Harvest International post.

4. Become a monthly donor
Monthly donations ensure we can provide farmers with the steady support they need to regenerate their land and our planet.

5. AmazonSmile
Select Sustainable Harvest International as your charity beneficiary and Amazon will make a donation on your behalf, at no extra cost to you! Click here to designate us as your AmazonSmile charity!

8. Activate your networks
Is your church or synagogue having a holiday fair? Is your alumni organization looking for a cause to support? Does your farmers market allow information stands? Everyone has connections and it’s easy to leverage them for good. Share your outreach ideas with us and we'll make sure you have everything you need for success.

9. Become a business that gives back
Did you know that 55% of consumers are willing to pay more for products from socially responsible companies? Demonstrating your values is good for your reputation and for the planet! Consider donating a percentage of your sales to charity for a day. Or a week. A month! Greenbar Distillery has been supporting our work through a percentage of sales for ten years! Join them!

10. Host a house party
Whether it's a potluck or a catered event, house parties are a fun way to build community while raising money to protect forests and support farmers. Be sure to let us know if we can help.

11. Donate
We may be stating the obvious, but your donations keep our organization running. Curious how we put them to use? Visit the annual report.

12. Check to see if your employer matches funds
Every year, donors like you amplify their impact through workplace giving. Check with your employer today!

13. Give us your miles
As an international organization, it's just part of the job that we spend a lot of time traveling to and from Central America. Help stretch donor dollars by sending your excess frequent flyer miles our way.

14. Donate Stock
Gifts of stock help us plant gardens of nutritious food, plant trees, enrich soil, and more. To donate stock, provide your broker with the following account information: Sustainable Harvest International / First Clearing LL / FBO Account #5978-493 / DTC #0141

17. Run for good
Running a marathon or race? Use crowdfunding sites like Razoo, GoFundMe, CrowdRise, etc. to raise money on behalf of Sustainable Harvest International.

18. Tell the world about us.
Do you like writing? Have a knack for persuasion? Why not submit an op-ed, editorial, or interview with one of our staff? You can help change the world by helping others understand the connection between farmers, poverty, and climate (and Sustainable Harvest International, too!). Contact us for statistics, photographs, and stories to include.

19. Volunteer translation
Are you a fluent or native Spanish speaker? Whether translating fresh farm stories, brochures, or subtitles, translation is a great way to put your language skills to good use. Email us to find out what projects are available.

20. Explore our blog
Our blog is a repository of inspirational stories. Share our stories, comment, and like to help ensure our stories reach the most people possible.

These are just twenty suggestions—there are plenty more ways to support us.

We're grateful for the innovative ways our community of supporters has, is, and will help us continue serving farming communities and the planet’s forests.

THANK YOU!
