2018: Year in Review
In 2018, we made strides in our three areas of focus: training farmers, empowering changemakers, and creating coalitions. Through programs such as the Hudson Valley Farmer Training Collaborative and our Farm Business Incubator along with our apprentice program, we prepared new and beginning farmers for success by providing training and resources across an array of areas. We're also proud to engage professional and public audiences more effectively than ever before through mission-aligned workshops, retreats, and excursions. Lastly, we continued solidifying the Hudson Valley as a food region by championing New York's Cider Week events, pushing our Hudson Valley CSA Coalition to expand membership and understand the current market landscape, and discovering the potential of new crop varieties through our Kitchen Cultivars project.

Glynwood is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and we rely on the generosity of donors to make our work possible. We solicit a wide range of philanthropic support, including foundation grants, government grants and individual contributions. A small portion of our income is earned from sales of farm products like meat, eggs and vegetables, as well as from site rentals, and this type of revenue is taxable despite our tax-exempt status. The majority of our revenue goes directly to supporting our programmatic work, with the remainder used for administrative and fundraising expenses.
Glynwood is also a Nonprofit Partner of 1% for the Planet, which connects businesses, consumers and nonprofits, empowering all of us to drive big, positive change. Nonprofit Partners play an integral role in the direct environmental impact of the 1% for the Planet network, and donations from member businesses directly support the Nonprofit Partners of their choice.
