The CCOF Foundation offers relief funding for organic farms experiencing hardship, often due to climate disasters. When fires affect small organic farms, like the recent fires that devastated many communities on Maui and on several of the Hawaiian Islands, the CCOF Foundation is here to help. 

Please consider donating to the CCOF Foundation’s Hardship Assistance program. When we respond to climate disasters like this one, 100 percent of your donation will go directly to farmers in need. 

Donations can be made online at www.ccof.org/donate. Contact CCOF Foundation Donor Relations Manager Shawna Rodgers at srodgers@ccof.org for assistance with wire transfers or check payments. 

Please share this blog with any organic farmers on the Hawaiian Islands who may need funding, or among any of your friends, family, and network that are looking for ways to support Hawaiian organic farmers recovering from these devastating fires. More information about CCOF’s hardship relief funding, including eligibility requirements, is available at https://ccof.org/page/hardship-assistance.

Qualified applicants will receive financial assistance to help cover losses from natural disasters, personal hardship, or other unplanned emergencies.
