In - Kind Donations

In-kind contributions are donations of goods and services (non-cash contributions). Thanks to our in-kind donors and their generosity, the UFW Foundation has distributed essential goods to our farm workers, including PPE, food, water, sunblock, clothing, amongst other items. 

We are grateful to our donors, including individuals, community, and corporate partners whose generous contributions of in-kind goods and services offset costs for materials, supplement programs, and events the UFW Foundation offers. We thank all of our individual, community, and corporate donors. Your generosity is essential in providing critical resources to our farm worker communities.
