Get involved and help us in the fight against breast cancer.
The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization based in Rocky Ford, CO. that helps U.S. growers donate a percentage of sales of each Porcelain Doll F1 pink pumpkin grown to organizations supporting breast cancer research.
The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation was created in 2012 to help in the fight against breast cancer. Through the foundation, America’s pumpkin growers have pledged to give a percentage of proceeds from every pink pumpkin sold this year to organizations involved in breast cancer research.
The foundation oversees donations and ensures funds go directly to reputable organizations with the highest percentage of dollars spent on actual research.
The foundation encourages others to get involved by growing and promoting the Porcelain Doll Pink Pumpkin or to purchase a pink pumpkin from a local grower and show their support in the Fall.
