AMI Sponsorship

Allegheny Mountain Institute invites you to join us in cultivating healthy communities through food and education as a 2023 Sponsor.

Your sponsorship will enable us to strengthen our programming, train future farmers and food system workers, and have an even greater impact on the health of our region. Together we can nourish our community, foster wellness, and replenish the land that sustains us.   

At the heart of our work, our tuition-free Farm and Food System Fellowship is a unique educational experience that prepares participants to advocate for a food system that is socially, environmentally, and economically just. In partnership with local schools, nonprofits, and hospitals, we grow and distribute approximately 50,000 pounds of vegetables annually. Our educational programming and nutrient-dense food nourish Augusta Health patients, provide valuable farm-to-school education for students in Staunton and Waynesboro public schools, and support community health and education in Highland County.   

Choose from our sponsorship levels to be featured on our website, social media, and farmers market banners in Monterey, Staunton, Fishersville, and Waynesboro. Your commitment to supporting community health will be visible to thousands of people throughout our region, and 100% of your donation will be tax-deductible. 

Sponsorship deadline: March 31, 2023
