Crowdfunding via social media has become an increasingly popular way for individuals to raise funds for many purposes, from taking a fancy vacation to paying medical expenses.
While public and private resources are available to assist farmers and ranchers affected by the recent atmospheric rivers that created widespread flooding, many are taking fundraising into their own hands and setting up appeals on the site GoFundMe.
To amplify their requests, here is a list of CCOF-certified operations that currently have an active GoFundMe posting or online appeal. If you know of another CCOF-certified operation with a GoFundMe posting, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
