Ways to Give

Ways to Give

At RAFI, we believe that our current food system is deeply flawed and unjust. Rural communities, including their land, animals, and people, are often exploited to benefit powerful corporate interests. RAFI is addressing these issues head-on. Through our work across agricultural sectors and partnerships with coalitions, we provide farmers with practical support and advocate for policies that empower farmers to make the best choices for their farms, families, communities, and the environment. 

When you give to RAFI, your donation will support:

  • Farmer Outreach Programs: Providing essential resources, education, and support to farmers across the Southeast, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
  • Policy Advocacy Efforts: Fighting for fair and equitable policies that support sustainable agriculture and protect the rights of farmers.
  • Community Building Initiatives: Creating networks and coalitions to strengthen local food systems and promote food justice.
  • Education:  Educational programs to advance knowledge and practices in sustainable farming.
  • Direct Assistance for Farmers in Need: Offering financial and technical assistance to farmers facing challenges or crises.
