As part of its mission to promote local, healthy, and sustainable food, the Funky Chicken Coop Tour®, as an event of Urban Poultry Association of Texas, Inc. (UPAT).
The 2016 Funky Chicken Coop Tour is a fundraiser for our organization. After 7 tours, we are working to grow our outreach programs through various partnerships. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
UPAT also supports and partners with other local not-for-profit organizations educating people on the importance of a healthy, sustainable food system.
Past years’ nonprofit causes include:
The Sustainable Food Center (2011). SFC received all proceeds from the FCCT raffle fundraising.
Green Corn Project (2012). In addition to providing financial funding as a top-level sponsor for the GCP Fall 2012 Fundraiser, FCCT/UPAT promoted and recruited chicken-loving volunteers for a 2012 GCP Fall Dig-In weekend. See Fall 2012 Dig-In photos…
In 2013 FCCT donated to two local causes: Partners in Education, Agriculture, and Sustainability (PEAS) and Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms.
In 2014 FCCT donated to New Farm Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to meet a need for training, education, and resources for citizens and beginning farmers via a Permablitz organized by the Austin Permaculture Guild.
