Corporate and Individual Investment

Invest in the present and future of CFET.  Corporate and individual investments enable us to support the programming we do with the youth of Camden, to grow and distribute chemical-free and healthy fruit and vegetables to the people of Camden and to provide educational and experiential programming for Camden residents as well as visitors from around the region. Make an investment here!


A great example is Citizen’s Bank.  See below!

Citizens Bank presented a $5,000 contribution to the Center for Environmental Transformation (CFET) as part of the bank’s Citizens Helping Citizens Fight Hunger initiative to support various nonprofits throughout Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware that provide hunger relief, nutrition assistance and help improve access to food for families.

In-kind Giving

Finances aren’t the only way you can contribute to the growth and development of CFET.  There are always specific items we’re looking for to help us pursue our mission and that includes everything from paper clips to pitchforks.  Because equipment takes such a beating in our rough-and-tumble, non-profit world we ask that all in-kind donations be durable and in new or like-new condition.  If you have a more worn donation you’re considering sending our way, just send us an email beforehand and we’ll see if we can make use of it.

If you have any questions about item specifications or would like to coordinate a drop-off or pick-up, please contact us at info@cfet.org.
