Who is Lettuce Dream?

We are a nonprofit, social enterprise created specifically to serve individuals with developmental disabilities through a hydroponic farming operation.  It is an environment where individuals learn practical work skills through an organized training program and gain skills that prepare them for community employment.

We also believe eating locally grown produce is very important. Not only is it healthier, fresher, and tastes better, but it will stimulate our local economy.

So now you are thinking…what can I do to help?

  • We have concluded phase one of the building process on three acres of donated land.  We are fully operational and have started programming with individuals. We are asking for your help with donations to fund our services.
  • To be a part of Lettuce's Dream's growth, you may donate to operations through the PayPal donate button above.
  • Tax laws are changing and it could benefit you to use tax credits to contribute to Lettuce Dream.
    Fifty percent of a contribution to Lettuce Dream can be taken off your tax liability.
    For example - If you make a contribution of $5,000 to Lettuce Dream and indicate you wish to use a tax credit, $2,500 would then be available to write off your taxable liability to the state of Missouri. The amount can also be rolled over to other years or transferred. Lettuce Dream is able to collect $2,500 from this method of donation based on this amount. You can still use the donation amount on your federal income taxes as well. Lettuce Dream will send you the paper that you will need to submit to your tax preparer.
    The minimum donation for tax credits is $100.
    Interested? Contact your tax preparer and ask about the advantage of MO TAX CREDITS - for the Developmentally Disabled.
    If you wish to take advantage of this way to contribute you may call us at 660-224-2203 and ask us to send you the information regarding tax credits.
  • On behalf of our board, our communities and the individuals we hope to serve, we thank you.

We are extremely thankful to our community for your continued support! Without our large community of supporters, our dream would not be possible.

Thank you!
