Each year, hundreds of individual donors–current and former volunteers, tree owners who have authorized us to care for or harvest their fruit, local orchardists and gardeners, and community members across Seattle–support our work with a gift of cash or equipment. In 2020, when the pandemic started, individual donors helped us survive the worst of the funding cuts. We came back stronger than ever in 2021, and are now able to realize our strategic goals for the next few years. Individual donors continue to be an important lifeline for City Fruit, contributing roughly 1/3 of our annual budget.
If you are in a place where you can financially support our work, we hope you would consider donating funds to help us achieve our mission: to harvest from and steward urban fruit trees to support sustainable and equitable access to fruit. Please know that every gift–no matter how small or large–makes a difference. If you would like to speak to someone about your gift, please call our office or email our Development Manager, Layla Judkins at [email protected]. Thank you for believing in us!
