As an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Tryon Farm Institute depends on the generosity of community donors in order to meet its financial obligations.

Bonus!  Your donation may be a charitable tax-deductible contribution under 501(c)(3) Federal tax law.

Your support helps us do a lot of great work!
While a great majority of TFI efforts are performed on a volunteer basis, including many education and outreach initiatives, we need to fund basic administrative and land management costs that can’t be met by volunteerism alone.  From restoration and preservation of native habitats to unique outreach and education programming, TFI needs your support to fulfill its Mission to preserve natural areas for generations and promote the benefits of human lives meaningfully connected with nature.
