It’s been an incredible experience to participate in, as hundreds of community members and a dozen local organizations have contributed over $30,000 to the fund. The local businesses and organizations who provided contributions included Catskill Harvest Market, Slow Food Upper Delaware River Valley, The Catskill Center for Conservation & Development - Lark in the Park Fund, Heather Ridge Farm, The Ashokan Center, Story Laurie, the Center for Agricultural Development & Entrepreneurship, The Livestock Foundation, Gowns for Greenbacks, Catskill Heritage Alliance, Kiwanis Club of Delhi and the Omega Institute.
The Raise the Roof Fund is managed by a committee of local farmers and community members with administrative support from the Watershed Agricultural Council. Distribution of funding is the decision of the fund committee. One-hundred percent of donations collected have been awarded through the fund.
