This fall the American Farmland Trust has a goal of raising $75,000 for the Brighter Future Fund to directly support 15 local farmers in California. AFT is excited to partner with you to plant the seeds of resilience for farmers in California by directly providing funds for farms to overcome critical barriers impacting food systems.

Each $5,000 grant directly supports women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ farmers in your community helping strengthen farm resilience, enhance farm viability, and improve land access outcomes. Your support helps farmers with critical fire protection, improving soil health, installation of irrigation, purchasing critical equipment, building structures, and covering the costs for leasing or buying farmland.

The Brighter Future Fund is only made possible by your support, and it goes a long way! Every dollar given goes directly to California farmers. AFT is excited to continue to build momentum in your region by providing a helping hand to farmers creating a more vibrant and sustainable future for agriculture. Thank you for helping the AFT further our mission and strengthen your local agricultural community!
