Christmas at the Bushy Hill Farm Fundraiser

A fundraiser benefiting the Bushy Hill Farm animals and programs for all ages
Christmas at the Farm 2019

How much should I plan to spend?

The Bushy Hill Farm depends on the tax-free donations from friends like you for funding toward enrichment activities for our animals, interactive and educational programming for schools and the community, and our goal of installing an education center at the farm.

We suggest a donation of $10-20 per family attending the fundraiser. We want the farm and its activities to be available to all of our friends and family, regardless of their financial status. Therefore, we ultimately leave the amount you donate up to you. Each donation of $10 or more will receive a handmade (by our Farm Manager, Georgia) Bushy Hill 2019 Ornament and a Bushy Hill drawstring backpack (while supplies last).

How is the money raised at the Christmas at the Farm Fundraiser Used?

100% of the proceeds from this event will go to the farm. Georgia, our farm manager, will allocate the money as needed in different areas of the farm from repairing fencing and buildings to purchasing enrichment toys for the animals, building up our farm curriculum and educational offerings, and more!

The Bushy Hill Farm is part of the Incarnation Center, a 503(c) nonprofit. Therefore, all donations (monetary or otherwise) made to the farm are able to be taken as a tax deduction for you.

The following activities (or something similar) will be offered during the event. We will post out the scheduled times for certain activities as we get closer to the event.

Christmas at the Farm Pre-Registration Information

Why Pre-Register?

We encourage our visitors to pre-register for a few reasons. When you pre-register, you don’t need to bring as much cash with you on the day of the event; the “must do” things have already been purchased. Also, you are guaranteed to receive a Bushy Hill 2019 ornament and any pre-ordered hats and mugs (at discounted rates!) whether you end up attending the event that day or not. The ornaments, hats, and mugs are all available while supplies last and we’d hate for you to miss out if you are late or unable to attend due to any variety of reasons that might pop up that day. All unclaimed pre-registration items will be held in the Nature Center until you are able to pick them up.
