Month of Giving – Totals Are In
Fundraising with Mako Medical, Modern Woodmen and YOU!
During the month of August all Eschelon Experiences’ restaurants set out to raise $10k for our nonprofit partner, Raleigh City Farm, during our quarterly Month of Giving. Each restaurant used tactics to reach the fundraising goal, everything from donating a dollar amount from the sales of featured menu items to encouraging our guests to add at least $1 to their bill. We were also very fortunate to establish a giving relationship with Mako Medical and Modern Woodmen, our two corporate matching partners, each matching up to $2,500.
With all of our fundraising efforts combined we were able to raise a GRAND TOTAL of $9,041 for Raleigh City Farm- just shy of our goal but more than we’ve ever raised before.

RALEIGH CITY FARM
Raleigh City Farm is a high-production community supported urban farm and food hub founded in 2011. We operate as a social enterprise nonprofit, and our mission is to grow new urban farms and farm entrepreneurs to strengthen sustainable, healthy food systems.
City Farm is host to multiple semi-autonomous farm entrepreneurs. The food we grow is sold into the community through restaurant sales, CSA shares, and on-site farmstand. We adhere to ecological and appropriate technological growing practices and strive to serve as a model urban farm.
In addition to on-site production, Raleigh City Farm supports new farm entrepreneurs throughout the Piedmont. We do this by acting as a food hub and facilitating access to various urban markets. We also provide opportunities for community engagement that allow the public to broaden their understanding of how food is grown and how it gets to our tables.
