Purpose and Activities

The Agroecology Fund is a collaboration of donors working to coordinate and sustain agricultural systems that build on the existing skills and practices of local farming communities, undergird the food sovereignty and health of the majority of the world’s population, and mitigate the negative effects of climate change on the environment.


Established in 2012; The Fund was launched in January 2012 by four founding donors, including: The Christensen Fund, New Field Foundation, the Swift Foundation and one anonymous foundation. In 2013, the Fund welcomed two new donor partners: The McKnight Foundation and the Tikva Grassroots Empowerment Fund. In 2014, U.K. funders Synchronicity Earth and the A Team Foundation joined the Fund. In 2015 and 2016, the following organizations joined: the Franciscan Sisters of Mary, the SWF Immersion Fund, the Casey and Family Foundation, the Helianthus Fund, the Peterffy Foundation and a foundation which chooses to remain anonymous. The Fondation Charles Leopold Mayer – FPH provided support for the AgroEcology Fund's learning exchange.
