MOFGA's Bread & Butter Club helps fund the substantive, day to day program efforts of MOFGA's staff and volunteers. Members of the Bread & Butter Club commit to funding one or more days of MOFGA's annual budget, $984.35/day in 2011. MOFGA keeps club members apprised of the association's financial health, and notifies members about year-to-year projections for the daily funding requirements.

MOFGA is in the enviable position of having healthy earned income streams. We generate two thirds of our operating budget from membership dues, organic certification fees, proceeds from the Common Ground Country Fair and other educational events, and sales of other goods and services. Still, we need donor support.
