Donations from foundations and individuals make our work possible. We also fund our work by organising events and undertaking research. We only accept support and commissioned work that does not compromise our independence.
The organisation was established in 1998 with support from the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and the Farm and Food Society.
We are very grateful to our current funder, the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, and to previous funders the Polden Puckham Charitable Trust, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, the JMG Foundation, the AW60 Charitable Trust and the Naturesave Trust.
