My Virtual Acre
Become a Virtual Farmer
Your donation will be multiplied x2 for every dollar spent.
My virtual acre is a unique fundraising initiative that works with farmers in Canada to help farmers in poor parts of the world.
How it works:
- Your $300 donation goes to provide seeds and supplies to a farm an acre of land in Canada.
- The farmer in Canada, grows these crops, sells them, and donates the proceeds (approximately $500) to Tearfund Canada.
- Every dollar donated to Tearfund’s account is matched $1 by the Canadian Foodgrains bank.
- These funds are sent abroad to farmers in Ethiopia, Kenya, India and around the world.
With these funds Tearfund Canada works with church partners to provide seeds, supplies and training on conservation agriculture, to farmers struggling to make ends meet. Farmers dramatically improve their crop, giving families more to eat and leaving some over to sell so they can improve their lives even more!
We’re blessed to be supported by wonderful men and women who seek to follow Jesus where the need is greatest.
