Farm Aid Foundation
The Foundation, begun by singer Willie Nelson, focuses on four areas for its grantmaking: farm resources, farm action, food systems, and farm policy. Farm resources grants support organizations that provide support to family farmers through formal and informal hotline contacts; leadership training and guidance in innovative farming techniques; referrals for financial, legal, and emotional aid and occasional emergency assistance. Farm action grants support educational campaigns and conduct outreach to family farmers and consumers regarding the benefits of family-farm produced foods. Food system grants work with family farmers to create new markets for their food. Farm policy grants support organizations that work with policy makers at the state, regional, and national level to create systems for family farm-focused food production, processing, distribution, and consumption.
