FOR OUR FARMERS: Your crops are your livelihood. You prepare, you plant, you nurture and they grow. That’s what happens in the lives of the abused and neglected children we serve in our community, and we invite you to grow the future of these children with us.
You can make a difference in the lives of foster children in our community by making a grain donation. Inform the staff at your local grain elevator how many bushels you would like to donate into a Fostering Hope Account. You can inform them directly, or fill out the following form and give it to the office. After you have delivered the grain, call us at 605.644.6834 or email contact@FosteringHopeSD.org regarding your donation. As we are completely privately funded and volunteer driven, every bushel donated goes directly to support our program of confronting abuse and changing lives.
We thank you for your support and wish you a bountiful harvest!

- By giving grain, you avoid including the sale of the grain in your farm income. Although a charitable income tax deduction is generally not available to you, the avoidance of declaring it as income is a significant benefit. You deduct the cost of growing the crops which typically results in saving self-employment tax, federal income tax and state income tax. As each farmer’s situation is different, you should consult your professional advisor for legal and tax advice on how a gift of grain may apply to your circumstances. This information should not be construed as providing you with legal or tax advice.
