Finnriver Donations & Community Support


COMMUNITY SUPPORT

 
We want our work at Finnriver to be a positive force in the world and we have several programs in place to support our local and regional communities:
1. Donations of cider or cider tastings for non-profit community events*
2. Non-profit and community event sponsorships
2. Educational tours and programs for schools and community organizations
3. Farm AIR program: Free ‘activist inspiration and rejuvenation' tours for urban non-profits working for social, ecological and food justice
4. Discounts on rental of our community event space for non-profit events
*Cider donations can take the form of pre-made auction baskets or bottled/draft cider for direct service at the event. Finnriver staff may sometimes be available to serve if the event has significant opportunity for outreach. Organizations may also be asked to pick donated product up directly from the farm. Given the very high number of requests for cider donations, we have focused our commitment to supporting local/regional organizations who promote the well-being of people and the land, prioritizing those on the North Olympic Peninsula and extending into Puget Sound and greater Washington. We support educational initiatives, but we focus primarily on local schools and do not donate to school fundraisers beyond our own community at this time. 

If you are seeking a donation, please go to bottom of this page and fill out the form.  We will consider your request and get back to you as soon as we can!  Thank you...
 
If you have questions, check with us at: donations@finnriverfrm.com.
