Outside of Houston and along the Gulf Coast, hundreds of organic and sustainable farmers and ranchers need your help. You can help by contributing to TOFGA’s Disaster Relief Fund. The Texas Organic Farmers & Gardener’s Association (TOFGA) is a statewide volunteer-run 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to helping organic and sustainable producers.
The Disaster Relief Fund was established during the 2011 record drought which devastated livestock producers and growers across the state. More recently, for many East Texas farmers this is the third major flood they’ve experienced in 18 months! However, Texas farmers are an independent lot and don’t give up easily.
TOFGA has kick-started the support for those impacted by Harvey by allocating $1,000 to the TOFGA Disaster Relief Fund. We encourage you to give what you can or find another way to donate or volunteer during the recovery efforts. Even better, if you know a local farmer impacted by the storm, you can donate directly to the farmer!
All donations will be used to support organic farmers and ranchers affected by Harvey. TOFGA does not charge a credit card processing fee. The Board will formalize and announce our fund distribution process shortly after reviewing IRS requirements.
