This fall, Student Action with Farmworkers launches our annual grassroots fundraising campaign
Our goal for the 2015-2016 fiscal year is to support over 50 program participants, alumni, board members and donors to raise $42,000 through online fundraising campaigns.
SAF uses money raised from individuals to:
• conduct outreach to students and farmworkers,
• provide training, stipends, and scholarships for interns, fellows, and youth,
• share documentaries and presentations with the general public, and
• provide a living wage and full benefits to our staff
