We rely on donations to keep our project going!

We rely on financial donations to help us purchase trees, offer workshops, and cover other essential expenses. Small donations are a big deal, anything helps. Donations are tax deductible. Please contact us if you would like to donate or use the PayPal button below.

Lawrence Fruit Tree Project is a not for profit 501(c) 3 organization under the umbrella of The Sunrise Project  Since this is our umbrella organization’s account, please indicate in the note associated with the donation that this is for the LFTP.

Lawrence Fruit Tree Project wish list

Here is a list of items we are in need of. If any of these items are gathering dust in your garage and you’d like to pass them along, we’d be glad to put them to use!   Please do not buy new tools or materials, rather give financially. Giving new use to used equipment is our preference.  Also, we are able to buy specific to our needs. Your support is greatly appreciated!

If you have materials that you would like to donate, please email to coordinate delivery.
