Family-owned farm and creamery Bellwether Farm’s philanthropic arm, the Bellwether Farms Foundation, is giving back to its local community and offering assistance to those affected by recent California fires.
“We are grateful to those who have already given to the Bellwether Farms Foundation and the fire relief efforts,” said Liam and Diana Callahan, Owners of Bellwether Farms, in a statement. “Recovery from the fires will take years. We’re a resilient community and we’re committed for the long term. Establishing this matching grant allows our friends and business partners here and around the country to participate in recovery efforts."
The Bellwether Farms Foundation will match donations of up to $25,000 made to the company’s YouCaring campaign or through the company’s website. The foundation will double every dollar pledged up to a total $50,000, with proceeds going to organizations including the Redwood Empire Food Bank, an organization highly-ranked in Charity Navigator for its impact, governance, and transparency.
The Bellwether Farms Foundation was established in 2016, on the occasion of Bellwether Farms’ 30th anniversary. Pausing to reflect on the company’s history, the Callahan family determined to share their success by pledging one percent of sales to strengthen the food system by supporting organizations which provide hunger relief or food-related education to our communities.
