Ceres Community Project would love to work with your corporation, company, or business to create a mutually beneficial partnership.

Here are some great ways for companies and employees to get involved:

Event Sponsorship

Our generous corporate partners help underwrite the cost of our annual benefit event—Harvest of the Heart, ensuring that all the funds raised at the event go directly to our core programs. For more information contact Laura J. Giacomini at [email protected].


Volunteers are the heart of Ceres Community Project and play an essential role in every area of our work. Join the Ceres volunteer family who are working together to nourish and enrich our community. Find out more about on-going volunteer opportunities here. We can also work with you to create team builds and other one-time volunteer events. Please contact Laura J. Giacomini at [email protected].

Planned Giving


A will is the easiest and most effective means to ensure that you fully provide for your family and that your assets are distributed as you wish. Gifts by will, or bequests, both large and small are important to Ceres Community Project. Many friends have remembered Ceres in their will while providing for their family at the same time.

Once you notify Ceres of your bequest intention, you qualify for membership in the Ceres Legacy Circle. The Legacy Circle was established in 2008 to recognize the generosity of Ceres’ friends who have included us in their estate planning. Legacy Circle members will receive recognition in our annual report. In addition, Legacy Circle members receive regular updates about important developments at Ceres and special invitations to Ceres meetings and events.

If you have any questions regarding any planned giving opportunities or the Ceres Legacy Circle please contact Laura J. Giacomini at [email protected].

Before making your estate plans, you should consult with a qualified estate planner, financial planner and/or attorney.
