2019 Annual Fund Appeal
Today, we’re asking for your help. Our 2019 Fund Appeal is still going on! This year your support is more important than ever as we plan for the future of Starcross, seek to sustain our daily work and fulfill our mission. Although we spend tremendous energy and effort on our wreath and olive oil sales, this generates barely one-third of our needed annual operating budget.
Our work in the world is with people who need help. Our services are always free. We know that we make a critical difference in many lives. We are happy to share our home, our garden, our land, and our spiritual strength.
However, this means that we depend on our supporters, like you, to make this generosity possible. YOU are the provider and we are the delivery service.
In the past year we have:
Welcomed people from all over the US and several other countries to spend time working on the organic farm or finding peace and healing among the olive trees.
Finalized a perpetual conservation easement through Sonoma Land Trust, protecting our land, and keeping us “forever wild.”
Run a twice-monthly food pantry, offering fresh organic produce, clothing, books and more to local folks in need.
Sent out weekly inspirational email Reflections to our friends to keep us connected, conversing, and our spirits up in these challenging times!
Your support of the Starcross community is absolutely needed and deeply appreciated. For many people, both close to home and far away, Starcross is life-saving and life-changing. For every one we touch, from our donors like you, to the young people we mentor through our WWOOF program, to the people we serve, we sincerely hope that Starcross is also profoundly life-affirming.
Thank you for being a necessary part of the Starcross story.
