About “Your 2 Cents”
“Your 2 Cents” began nearly five years ago as an innovative program that unites producers, consumers, researchers and educators to launch the next generation of organic farmers. Companies participate by donating 2 pennies per case of goods sold. Nearly 40 companies have participated, including Amy’s Kitchen, Boiron, Purely Elizabeth, Uncle Matt’s, Wedderspoon, and more!
NEW for 2016
In 2016, Rodale Institute and Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) announced an exciting expansion of our Your 2 Cents program. Under the new partnership, Rodale Institute will provide funds from its “Your 2 Cents” initiative to grow the available funds in OFRF’s grantmaking program. OFRF’s current grant cycle is focused on priorities identified in their 2015 National Survey of Organic Farmers, such as soil health for water management, creating new organic farmers, organic livestock production, and small grain production.
We are proud to fund farmers, ranchers, graduate students, veterans, and researchers studying the most pressing challenges in organic agriculture!
To apply for the next grant cycle, applicants should visit OFRF.org. Applications will be due February 2017, with awards announced early in April.
