Trusts and Foundations

We are grateful to have the support of many incredible trusts and foundations, who are supporting us in our mission to help 10,000 farming families across the UK. Without their contributions, we would be able to build confident rural communities or enable family farms to thrive through our many initiatives and programmes. We share an understanding that a thriving countryside is the foundation for a thriving nation. Together we are creating a real future for rural Britain.

If you are a trustee of, or have links to, a charitable trust or foundation which might be interested in supporting us, please get in touch with our Senior Trusts and Foundations Officer, Paige.
