Host a Fundraiser

Even if you are not personally able to donate money at this time, there are all kinds of creative ways to raise funds for a good cause. SOIL volunteers from around the world have organized events ranging from restaurant fundraisers to selling worm composting bins to raise money for SOIL’s work in Haiti. If you are interested in organizing an event in your area, please contact SOIL at donations@oursoil.org.

Volunteer as a Specialist

SOIL is always grateful for help in specialist areas like IT and graphic design. This is a great way to use your time and expertise to help change lives. Even better you can volunteer from the convenience of your home.

Invite Us to Speak

Does your organization or university host speakers? We are looking for platforms to deliver our message and share our knowledge. Email us at info@oursoil.org to schedule a talk.*

*Because we try to keep our overhead expenses as low as possible and spend our donations directly on programming, we are normally not able to accept speaker invitations without travel expenses and an honorarium.
