Farmers Feeding Florida
Through a partnership with Bayer CropScience, the Foundation is collaborating with Farmers Feeding Florida to provide grower incentives for wholesome yet unmarketable food to be delivered to families participating in the Redlands Christian Migrant Association’s programs.
Leadership Service Projects
Each year, FFVA’s Emerging Leader Development Program class learns about community and the importance of supporting groups that address the needs of farmworkers and their families. Each class undertakes a service project to help the farmworker families served by the Redlands Christian Migrant Association. Those projects have included drives for shirts and food.
RCMA Christmas Cards
RCMA provides quality child care and early education for children of migrant farm workers and rural, low-income families throughout Florida. The largest non-profit child-care provider in Florida, RCMA is a leader in high-quality early childhood services. The Foundation participates each year in the RCMA Christmas Card Project to raise money through the sale of holiday cards designed by RCMA students. In 2016, nearly 14,000 cards were printed with sales over $29,000. RCMA will earn a match of 16:1 on the net proceeds from those sales.

The 18th annual Benefit Auction, sponsored by the Foundation, raised $21,000 at FFVA’s annual convention to support the George Sorn Scholarship program, RCMA and the Emerging Leader Development Program. Each year at the convention, bidders vie for a splendid array of sports items, travel packages, wine selections, gifts and more while raising funds for a great cause. The Benefit Auction has raised an overall $558,007 over the past 19 years.
