Sprout Creek Farm has received a very generous $50,000 2:1 challenge match. In order for us to receive this gift we need to raise $100,000 by December 31, 2015. Can you help us meet this goal?
IMPACT ON YOUTH. During the last school year, more than 2,500 students participated in day and overnight programs and more than 750 local and regional children toured Sprout Creek Farm (SCF). Of these, 618 students came from the Network of the Sacred Heart Schools. Five hundred seventy-three regional and local children were enrolled in week-long day and overnight summer programs. More than 500 local and regional children made unpaid visits to the farm. The majority of these were low-income students from inner-city public schools from New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and surrounding states.
DONOR IMPACT. Due to the generosity of our donors, SCF was able to distribute approximately $19,102.00 to 42 students for summer service projects, $5,000 in scholarship funds to another 10 students and $28,000 in financial aid to 123 students. Indeed, our donors allow us to serve many students who would not otherwise be able to attend our programs and summer camps. Our policies are to ensure that any child can participate in Sprout Creek Farm programs, regardless of their ability to pay.
