Support

Become a part of Chicago Rarities Orchard Project's goal of bringing rare fruit to Chicago by joining our Plant-A-Tree and Adopt-A-Fruit programs. They are simple, affordable and will help us achieve our goal of developing our inaugural orchard. It takes time to develop an orchard, so your donation now will help us move into our permanent site once we secure it!

Select any of the donation buttons below to help us out. Donations are through PayPal but you don't need a PayPal account, Visa, MasterCard and American Express work just as well.

It will take thousands of dollars and endless work-hours to make this project a reality. Chicago Rarities Orchard Project is entirely volunteer run and solely donation funded. With your support we can create something beautiful and important to benefit Chicago.

You can help out CROP in a wide variety of ways. Support us by donating through PayPal or by joining us at one of our upcoming fundraisers (details TBA).

Also, special thanks go to Uncommon Ground for their Agripolitain program which has already donated 619 dollars to CROP! Thanks!
