Help us to achieve our mission!


As a nonprofit organization, Elawa Farm Foundation relies on the generosity of donors to provide the continued historic restoration of the garden, the buildings, and to grow our programs and educational opportunities.  Your support makes all the difference on our progress. As we wrap up the farm’s 100th year celebrations, we are looking and preparing forward to our next 100 years.  Please help us continue to grow.

Please note, you can make your donation in one lump sum or make a monthly, recurring donation.  

Elawa Farm is a 501(c) (3) organization, all contributions are tax deductible and a receipt will be returned to you for your tax records.
