What Is The Big Harvest?

The Big Harvest is a community fundraising drive benefiting local nonprofit agriculture organizations. With financial support from generous seed sponsors, the Butte Agriculture Foundation has cultivated a pool of matching funds for this community-wide agricultural fundraising drive. Learn more here

Why Participate?
The Big Harvest aims to make a dollar worth more than a dollar, helping agricultural nonprofits earn more money to achieve their good work and providing donors the opportunity to leverage their generosity for a higher return.
