How can I/my organization get involved?

There are many ways to support Rancho Cielo, from monetary pledges and in-kind donations to business partnerships that benefit our students and their career goals. We host several fundraising events throughout the year, such as:

The Culinary Round Up provides a unique opportunity to meet our Drummond Culinary Academy students and see them in action working with local chefs to prepare culinary delights for you to enjoy. There is also an exciting raffle and auction items that help generate additional funds needed for us to serve our students.

Rancho Cielo’s Veggie Box Fundraiser has grown bigger than ever. With the help of our amazing sponsors, hundreds of volunteers and in-kind donations of produce from local growers in the Salinas Valley and Watsonville, Rancho Cielo packs more than 10,000 boxes annually to feed families in and around Monterey County.

The weeklong event culminates with a delicious barbecue lunch generously prepared on-site to enjoy on campus or delivered to our sponsors and donors. These events also significantly impact the sustainability of vocational training for our students.

Our Jazz at the Ranch event series provides a unique opportunity to experience the magic of Rancho Cielo up close while enjoying world-class entertainment. Each concert includes a delectable menu of hor d’oeuvres prepared by Monterey chefs with help from Culinary Academy students and an assortment of fine local wines and beers. Proceeds benefit our direct services and enrichment programs, including our growing arts program.
