Friday evening The first annual Seeds of Tomorrow gala was held at Limoniera Ranch, in Santa Paula, CA to help those in need. The Houwelings Seeds of Tomorrow Project is helping Impact Ministry to make huge positive shifts with the childhood hunger issues in Tactic Guatemala. Through education and healthy food programs they can help change the cycle not just now but for future generations. Through the generosity of many including SoCal Gas and the Ronald Newburg Foundation almost $30,000 was raised to complete the Chisac commercial kitchen, complete the Chisac II irrigation project and provide an upgrade to the kitchen at our Vida Nueva school! On behalf of Impact Ministries we are grateful for all the efforts that went into making this event possible. We were blown away by everyone’s generosity. Words cannot express our gratitude to you all. Thank you for making this First Annual Seeds of Tomorrow Fundraiser Gala a success!

Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Today, December 1st, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world are coming together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
December is a time when we celebrate Christ’s birth. As we are reminded of just how much we have been given, could we take that feeling of gratitude and turn it into action this year? What better way of giving back than giving hope to a child!
We invite you to give to our Support a Class program today! Our goal today is to support at least one class and raise at least $6000. Will you help us reach this goal? Today we are looking for ongoing monthly supporters as well as people who would consider making a one-time gift.
Pick the class you would like to support with an ongoing monthly gift of $50/mo - Classes to Support
Make a one-time gift to the Support a Class program!
