Grants of up to $50,000 to USA nonprofit organizations and research and academic institutions for projects that support the organic farming industry. Applicants must submit a letter of interest prior to applying. Funding is intended for advocacy, education, and research projects that advance FAFO’s mission: to protect and promote the organic industry and the livelihood of organic farmers.

The fund provides a way for Organic Valley farmers to address the long-term needs of the organic marketplace and the future of organic agriculture by supporting the development of long-term solutions. Through combining resources, Organic Valley farmers are able to invest in projects that affect the livelihoods of organic farmers across the country.

Grants are awarded to research, education, and advocacy projects that advance FAFO’s mission: to protect and promote the organic industry and the livelihood of organic farmers.

Within this context, FAFO is currently prioritizing projects that focus on:

  • Projects that benefit family farmers who produce organic dairy, eggs, meat, produce, and grain/forage
  • Projects that focus on organic soil health and biology
  • Projects that strengthen CROPP Cooperative (internal)
