Growing Organically Since 1982

Fundraising

"You guys walk the walk," one NOFA/Mass member told us this spring when she sent her annual donation. "I am in love with NOFA. The whole organic world would be different without you."

On November 5, 2017, we will be walking (and running) the walk of the organic movement in Lexington, MA. The Organic To Heal the Planet Run is NOFA/Mass's yearly fundraiser and it makes our work possible! We need team members to run or to walk – please join us! Find out how to join the team here. Read more about it on our website: www.nofamass.org/teamnofamass.

Each year for the past five years, we’ve gathered together a team of runners, walkers, farmers, gardeners, homesteaders, sustainable living folks, eaters, and families for our annual NOFA/Mass Fundraising Walk/Run.

During the months leading up to November, team members reach out to their family and friends to ask for their support. All proceeds raised go to fund NOFA/Mass’s work.  On November 5, we gather together again, moving our bodies together, having awesome conversations, sharing in a delicious potluck, and connecting on the things we care about.  It is an event for all.  We welcome you to join us!

Cooler temps and sunny days beg us to get outside to enjoy the colors and all nature has to offer. Looking for a fun run/walk to pencil into your calendar? Our 4th Annual 5k run/walk “Organic to Nourish Our Soils and Ourselves” is only days away on Sunday, November 6 in Lexington. With your help, together we will create landscapes that restore our environment and feed our communities.

We are so close to reaching our goal of $25,000! You can still contribute whether or not you can make it to our 4th annual run/walk on November 6th!

On November 6th NOFA/Mass will be coming together for our largest fundraiser of the year, our 4th annual 5k run/walk - Organic to Nourish Our Soils and Ourselves. This event is a great way to join with NOFA/Mass board, staff and members to ensure the continuation of these innovative and important NOFA/Mass programs:

  • Restoring carbon to the soil from the atmosphere through organic land management practices
  • Training the next generation of organic farmers
  • Advocating  for public policy in the interest of farmers and consumers at the state and national levels
  • Strengthening connections with marginalized populations to improve their access to organic farming resources

We recently expanded our giving opportunities to include an option to donate monthly to NOFA/Mass. Monthly giving is a great way to help us sustain our programs all year long. A handful of faithful donors are already supporting us in this way. Enclosed is a letter from one such NOFA/Mass member.

The Boston Globe just launched the Globe Readers and Non-profits Together (GRANT) program. This week, the Globe mailed vouchers (like the one pictured) to all subscribers, that can be designated to any certified 501( c ) (3) non-profit (meaning organizations like the Northeast Organic Farming Association/Massachusetts Chapter, Inc.!).
