Support your local farms, farmers & farmlands.

Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. wants to provide the critical support and resources necessary to preserve farms by confronting the many challenges they face sustaining their businesses. Now, more than ever, it is vital that we support our local farms in their quest to provide food, fun and memories to our communities. YOU can HELP US (PRESERVE FARMS, FARMERS & FARMLANDS) HELP THEM (TRANSFORM TO AN EXPERIENTIAL APPROACH TO FARMING)!


Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T., which stands for Celebrate Helping Agriculture Reimagine Via Entertainment, Scholarships and Tourism, is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit corporation whose mission is preserving farms, farmers & farmlands by helping them make the transformation necessary to accomplish that mission. That transformation is to help the traditional, commodity-driven revenue producing farm move toward a more sustainable, experiential-driven revenue-producing farm. It’s Farming Reimagined. We want to achieve this transformation by:

1) providing students an opportunity for continued education in the field of non-traditional farming practices/methods – experiential farming, or agritourism – through scholarships.

2) fully funding participating farms’ field trips for students and schools that wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford field trips to an experiential farm with the hope of inspiring our youth at an early age toward such a field of study/profession.

3) providing farms/farmers with an organization (Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T.) that can help them fund/build/create/manage non-traditional farming events/activities on their farms.

4) providing local, state and national honeybee associations/organizations with funding

This is why Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. exists. With YOUR DONATION to Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T., it helps local farms and farmers keep their land, avoid selling to developers/development companies and sustain a long term, viable business model that will benefit their family as well as their communities. It also helps to ensure that our youth have the opportunity to keep this method of farming – experiential farming – alive and well for NOW and for FUTURE generations.

Help keep a local farm alive today and DONATE NOW  to Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T.!

To empower Washington public employees and retirees to strengthen their communities through the funding and support of charities.


For more than 35 years, Washington State has proven to be one of the most giving states in the nation. Each year, over 15,000 active and retired public employees pledge more than $5 million to over 1,700 local, national and global charities. That number is good enough to place Washington State third in the nation amongst state employee giving programs, an incredible feat given the fact that our great state is 13th in overall population.


Though the program currently disburses funds to more than 1,700 charities, there are actually over 4,500 member charities in the CFD. Charities must be a registered 501(c)3 or 170(c)1 with the Internal Revenue Service, and must also have an active registration with the Office of the Secretary of State Charities Program in order to qualify as an “official” CFD Charity. Celebrate HARVEST’S CFD Charity Code is 1483009 and it is listed under the Education & Literacy category.

The Combined Fund Drive does not endorse or condone the actions of any individual member organization. The program merely acts as a connection between the donor and their charity of choice. As outlined in the Combined Fund Drive’s Discontinuation of Contact Policy, there are very strict policies placed on member charities when contacting donors, ensuring that the CFD protects the privacy of everyone who gives through payroll contribution.


A state employee or retiree can give safely and easily through the CFD’s online system, or with a paper contribution form in any of the following ways:

Monthly Contribution 
A recurring amount will be taken out of each paycheck until the employee chooses to stop.

One-Time Contribution 
A single donation is collected and distributed to the charity of the donor’s choice.

Limited Time Contribution 
Donations will be taken out of each paycheck for a set amount of time as defined by the employee.

Personal check or cash, at fundraisers or accompanied by a paper contribution form.


Without volunteers, the Combined Fund Drive could not function as a viable giving organization. Over 1,000 active volunteers are stationed in various state offices and higher education campuses across the state, administering the program and promoting charitable giving to their offices.


The Combined Fund Drive campaign runs annually from the beginning of October to the end of December and is administered in over 250 different agencies and higher education institutions. County Committees also put together events around the state that help bring donations to the charities of the CFD.
