AgroEcology Fund Fund
About This Fund
The AgroEcology Fund (AEF) is a multi-donor fund supporting agroecological practices and policies. The fund aims to support viable food systems, promote the economic well-being and human rights of small farmers and their communities, and mitigate climate change through low input agriculture featuring sustainable soil and water use. It links organizations and movements that advance agroecological solutions locally, regionally and globally. With the guidance of international advisors deeply embedded in the agroecology movement, the fund supports some of the most effective farmer organizations, advocates and researchers in the field of agroecology. AEF began its work in 2012 and is currently supported by a diverse group of U.S., Asian and European funders all committed to international grantmaking to advance agroecology.
AgroEcology Fund's five year strategy includes shifting and leveraging significant financial resources towards agroecology; strengthening political and economic systems to enable agroecology to thrive; influencing the global conversation about solutions to global hunger by amplifying agroecological solutions and; co-creating and sharing agroecology knowledge and practice.
About The Host Organization
The New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity, supports innovative and effective public interest projects. NVF was established in 2006 in response to demand from leading philanthropists for an efficient, cost-effective, and time-saving platform to launch and operate charitable projects. We execute a range of donor-driven public interest projects in conservation, global health, public policy, international development, education, disaster recovery, and the arts. More than half of the 50 largest US grantmaking foundations have funded projects hosted at NVF, including 8 of the top 10.
