Why we need your support
Successful partnerships with The Nature Conservancy, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection, Farmers for Sustainable Food, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and many others provide funding and support to cover most of our program offerings. We also seek support for membership development, marketing, program development and administration of the organization. As such, we need the additional support of corporate and individual sponsors to ensure this vital work moves forward.
Given our status as an approved 501(c)3 organization, your sponsorship is fully tax-deductible. In addition, sponsors are recognized on our website and at all WWCC events.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, thank you for considering sponsorship of the WWCC and our farmer members.
