Benevolence Farm was built on the premise of mercy and sincere belief in second chances. We recognize that change must come from within, but can be cultivated and inspired through a supportive, natural environment. Our goal is to give our residents the time and space — figuratively and literally — to make real, lasting changes. Our residents develop skills in sustainable farming, micro manufacturing, and business development in an environment that fosters improved physical, spiritual and financial health. Residents actively contribute to the well-being of the farm, staking a claim in the program’s — and more importantly their own — success.
To advance our social justice work and impact, Benevolence Farm established the Second Chance Fund. This fund is our fundraising foundation, and we rely on generous gifts from philanthropic people and organizations to reach our annual goal year after year. While we may raise money for targeted issues, the Second Chance Fund supports our organizational capacity to serve women throughout the state on an ongoing basis. Our 2020 Second Chance Fund goal is $60,000. Will you be a part of giving second chances to women in North Carolina?
