As a nonprofit, Wakeman Town Farm relies on programming revenues and donations to stay afloat. Our programs pay a portion of the bills, but in order to keep the lights on, a steward in residence, and the animals fed, expenses are defrayed by contributions from  the community.

You can donate in any denomination through an easy PayPal option.

Our funds flow through a 501(c)(3) and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Westport Friends of Parks & Recreation/Wakeman Town Farm TAX ID: 27-4127337

To donate via check: Westport Friends of Parks and Rec/Wakeman Town Farm and mail to 134 Cross Highway, Westport CT 06880.
