Donation Requests

Donation Requests

There’s no shortage of donation requests that come in from worthwhile community organizations to our farm. While we’re a very community-oriented businesses, it’s not feasible to accommodate the hundreds of requests we receive annually. See below for our donation process and to determine if your organization is eligible for an in-kind donation from our farm. We also have a few different fundraiser options that we would love to partner with you on!

In-Kind Donations

Have a Tricky Tray or Silent Auction event coming up and looking for prizes? We have a limited number of family four-pack tickets to our Strawberry Festivals, Sunflower Trail Weekends, and Fall Festivals that we are able to donate every year. In order for your organization to be considered for a donation you must be:

  1. A registered 501(c)3 nonprofit with the IRS
  2. Within 20 miles from either our So. Brunswick or Washington farm location

If you are interested in an in-kind donation of tickets, fill out our Donation Form and email it to emma@vonthunfarms.com along with your tax exempt certificate. We will get back to you within 5 business days. Most donations are sent digitally, so you must have color printing capabilities.

Spring: Plant Sale Fundraiser (So. Brunswick ONLY)

This is a great fundraiser option for local groups, and the best time to do it is right before Mother’s Day! Let us know which items you would like to purchase- 4″ potted annuals, 4″ veggie plants, 8″ premium hanging baskets – and their quantities. We’ll give you a discounted price for the wholesale order and you can sell them at face value. You keep the difference and put it towards your fundraising goal. Visit our Plant Sale Fundraiser Program page for more information and tips on hosting a successful fundraiser.

Delivery is only available within a 20 mile radius of So. Brunswick so please keep that in mind when considering this option!

Summer: Sunflower Trail Ticket Sale

Eligible organizations may purchase tickets to the New Jersey Sunflower Trail in bulk at a reduced rate and you and your organization can sell them to supporters at face value ($14.99). You keep the difference as your fundraising proceeds. While this option is available to organizations near either of our farm locations, it’s important to note that the sunflower trail is ONLY available at our Washington, NJ location.
