Farm Aid’s mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in the US. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Margo Price host an annual festival to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. Since 1985, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, Farm Aid has raised more than $60 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms.Donate to Farm Aid
Heart for Africa Project Canaan’s egg farm is thriving, thanks to the support and generosity of the international egg community. This partnership saw a barren patch of land transformed into two layer barns filled with 5,000 hens. The farm now offers fresh eggs to thousands of people in the community and provides a locally produced protein that’s essential for human growth and development.Donate to Heart for Africa
