Make your purchases more meaningful

You can raise funds for crop conservation by playing Catan: Crop Trust (it’s the perfect gift!) or making purchases via Amazon Smile and the PayPal Giving Fund. It’s never been easier.


Compete & Cooperate to Conserve Crops

Makers of the award-winning board game, Catan, have come up with a fun new way to learn about the importance of crop conservation, while also raising money for the Crop Trust. The new game scenario, Catan: Crop Trust challenges players to cooperate as well as compete, by storing seeds from their harvests in a vault resembling the iconic Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway. All proceeds from sales of the game are donated to the Crop Trust, which provides long-term support for seed banks all over the world. Can you settle Catan without threatening the food supply? Find out, while at the same time supporting crop conservation in the real world. Game available in English and in German.
