We would also like to thank the following organizations for their in-kind donations:
Ask your employer about their matching gift program
There are thousands of philanthropic companies that reward their employees and retirees with their generous matching gifts for their volunteerism or their outright donations. For example, Exxon Mobil has a program that pays a $500 grant for 20 or more hours of time volunteered; an organization can receive up to $5,000 from an individual’s involvement. This could help pay for an intern to study at ECHO or a golf cart to take people on tours of our farm.
As a business, partner with us for as an event sponsor.
Our Passport to the World Travel Adventure Film Series brings a series of four adventure films to the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, narrated live by the film’s producer. These films are shown between January and March. This exciting and educational series brings exotic and faraway places to the local Southwest Florida community. This series usually draws between 250-300 individuals per show, and prices range from $280-$350 per couple. Our target market is retired, affluent seniors, who love to travel and have a philanthropic interest. This is the 10th year of our series and we typically reach our ticket goals three months before the first film showing.
We would love to have you as a sponsor for one, two, three or all four shows! For more information about how you can get involved as a sponsor, please contact Nichole Tabellija at (239) 567-3318.
Farm Day at ECHO welcomes the public to our International Headquarters for this annual event, designed to give the visitors perspective on the world of agriculture common to the peasant farmers in developing countries. This is an exciting day, as we give the public a chance to experience unique farming demonstrations located throughout our Global Village. These demonstrations and workshops are designed to explore some extraordinary solutions capable of helping the poor grow their own food, as well as water purification, container gardening, edible landscaping, fruit trees, bamboo, and more.

ECHO offers a great environment for corporate team building, staff meetings, and luncheons. We have a covered, screened Pavilion, complete with water and electricity for your needs. We will be happy to recommend a nearby deli for catering if you need a lunch provider.
