Veggie U is a non-profit children's education program. We strive, whenever possible, to place Classroom Gardens at no cost to educators. To do this, we continually seek funding from like-minded organizations, foundations, and individuals.

Along with direct donations and grants, we've had some pretty creative people do some pretty creative things to help with funding the schools in their area!

Here are some ideas, based on past successes to get you started with helping to fund your school:

Veggie U 5k Run or 1k Fun Run

Golf Outing

Supper Clubs

Tag sales

Child-decorated birdhouse raffles

Veggie U nights at local restaurants like Chipotle Mexican Grill

Direct asks to local organizations like Garden Clubs, PTA/PTOs, health departments, farmers and farmers' markets, chefs and restaurants, as well as grandparents and other loved ones who want to see Classroom Gardens in the schools.
