Heathcote’s work to transform itself depends on the financial support of members and donors. Please consider making a donation to Heathcote.


How to Make a Financial Donation


See our education center and farm to see how your donation can make a difference in strengthening the community, the next generations of small-plot food producers, and supporting their networks. We gratefully accept financial donations in all amounts. Simply use our contact form below to pledge a donation.


Gifts-in-Kind for items and services

In addition to financial contributions, we gratefully accept gifts-in-kind of goods and services. Consider donation of furniture, office equipment, and building materials that are in good condition and that Heathcote currently needs. We also need donations of services either without payment or at a significant discount, such as those of plumbers, electricians, and other skilled tradespeople. Administrative and technical services are also needed.


Become a Friend of the Mill

Friends of the Mill is a dedicated fund to restore the of Heathcote mill building, first constructed in 1842. It formerly served as Heathcote Education Center’s indoor public classroom, community meeting room, and Heathcote Community’s common kitchen. We will begin refurbishing the mill this year to expand the indoor component of our education program.


Volunteering at Heathcote

Volunteers make a more flexible work commitment, including on-off attendance or taking on a regular chore, without being residents at Heathcote.
