Donations of Fruit Trees and Technical Assistance. FTPF provides the planting materials and technical assistance to establish fruit orchards used for charitable purposes. The in-kind donations include:
- High-quality fruit trees and shrubs;
- On-site orchard design expertise and oversight;
- Horticultural workshops; and
- Aftercare training and manuals.
Applicants must be nonprofit organizations, public or nonprofit schools, or government entities serving a charitable purpose. Applicants must own the planting site or have long-term arrangements to remain at the planting site. They should have nearby water for site irrigation, and the ability to coordinate local volunteers on the day of planting.
Most programs are implemented in the USA. However, FTPF will also consider international projects.
APPLICATION: Applicants fill out FTPF’s application form to summarize their organization; to state the purpose of the fruit orchard; to estimate how many trees are needed; to indicate how the trees will be watered and maintained; and to describe bio-physical conditions of the planting site.
Applications are accepted continuously — there is no deadline.
