We would really like to grow our recurring gift option as a little ground we can count on planting in each month!  The secure online option allows you to give as little as $5.00 per month.  Making a recurring donation is an easy way to give that allows more of each dollar to go directly to stewarding our programs and organization by reducing administrative time spent processing donations. Rogue Valley Farm to School is always so grateful and touched by the support of our community.  It's so nice to have enthusiasm for our programs expressed in all the ways you all do, thank you!
