About Us

Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) amplifies the impact of philanthropic and investment communities in support of just and sustainable food and agriculture systems.

SAFSF helps funders and investors strengthen connections within the sustainable agriculture and food systems community, foster collaboration with their peers, and build capacity to be more effective in their philanthropy and in their advocacy for change.

We convene, educate and organize funders around issues critical to rebuilding community food security and agricultural resilience, and seek to amplify the voice of farm and food systems philanthropy in public policy.

SAFSF members are individual investors, regranting organizations, community foundations, corporate and private foundations, approximately 100 organizations in all, operating throughout the U.S. and abroad. Funders within our network support work within all parts of the food and farming system, and at the intersections of issues including climate change and resilience, community health, equity and justice, and rural development.
