Nonprofit charities provide solutions to problems that affect society.  In creating our mission statement, we asked,  “What can Valley Crest do to help our community and make it a better place?”  We identified these areas of concern:

Help feed those in need. 

Valley Crest donated approximately 100,000 pounds of fresh nutritious fruit and vegetables to NORWESCAP Food Bank and local food pantries  over the past two years. 

Focus on sustainability and education.

 Valley Crest offers a variety of nature-based educational programs for families and scouts that encourages respect for farms and nature such as the Stream Safari,  night hikes, survival classes, orienteering, tree and plant identification,  farm to table, pollinator workshops, apple cider making, and much more.

Recreation

With over 2 miles of beautiful woodland public trails for hiking, birding, horseback riding and just enjoying nature, Valley Crest welcomes all to experience the beauty and tranquility of our farm. 

Individual Contributions

We've planted the seeds, but we need your help to keep growing! Donate now and help us continue to address hunger in our community and educate area youth and our community about the importance of a local food system and healthy environment.  Any level of support is greatly appreciated! For wire transfers, please contact our office at (908) 238 9696.

Corporate Support and Volunteerism

Valley Crest provides opportunities for corporate groups to strengthen relationships through teambuilding activities in a beautiful natural setting.  We invite your company to help us harvest our crops and “give back” by investing in our farm and sharing our vision for the future.

Matching Gifts

Many companies have programs through which they will "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, you can leverage your contribution to Valley Crest and reinforce the value of its programs for the community.

Security Donations & Planned Giving

Making a gift of appreciated securities may be a great tax-efficient method of supporting Valley Crest Preserve.  Donating such stock to Valley Crest can help you reduce or potentially eliminate capital gains tax while keeping farming viable and sustainable in New Jersey.

Planned giving may take the form of a bequest of financial assets or personal property such as real estate through your will.

There are other options to leverage a planned giving program which would have a long-term impact on Valley Crest’s financial sustainability.

Examples of this are:

  • Income-Producing Gifts - can provide you and/or your loved ones with income for the duration of your lives or for a term of years.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts - can be used to provide an inheritance to loved ones at a minimal tax cost at the end of the term.
  • Bequests - can allow you to make a more substantial gift than you might otherwise imagine possible.
  • Noncash Assets- can be turned into gifts with immediate tax benefits.

Speak to your tax or financial advisor regarding a donation of securities and planned giving programs. Or, for additional information, please contact our financial advisor:
