Who We Are
Hearts of Harvest Foundation (HOHF) is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization whose mission is to: Provide financial assistance and support to families and their children of our community who are in a health crisis. The operating principles of the organization include:
It is the goal of HOHF to provide grants to organizations and individuals whose need supports the mission of HOHF. In return HOHF requests that recipients provide financial accountability for their grant monies received from HOHF once a year. None of the funds received are to be used for administrative or fundraising purposes. Families applying for a grant must reside in San Joaquin County. Applicants in neighboring communities may be considered.
HOHF is proud to state that an estimated 90% of our budget (during event year) is gifted to selected beneficiaries supporting our mission and 10% covers minimum administrative expenses. During non-fundraising event years, costs are kept to a minimum so we can continue to give to families in need. We are able to do this due to very little overhead and staff working from home.
