Thank You from Our Grantees
“Being a grassroots group led by family farmers, we always struggle to make ends meet since many larger foundations will not fund our work challenging corporate agribusiness and promoting food sovereignty. So it is especially heartening for our members when we receive support from the likes of the Small Planet Fund.”
— John Peck, Family Farm Defenders
“From its inception in 2002, the Small Planet Fund is representative of the integrity, courage, and activist spirit of the Frances Moore Lappé-Anna Lappé team. The Center for Ecoliteracy is proud to be associated with the Lappés and deeply grateful to be a beneficiary of the Fund. While taking many forms, the vital work of cultural and environmental restoration go hand in hand around the world. The Lappés recognize this, and by designating the Center a core grantee have also conferred the prestige of being among some of the most creative and courageous change-makers of our day.”
— The Center for Ecoliteracy
“As a nonprofit organization working in some of the most isolated parts of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, TransFair USA depends on the support of visionary donors like the Small Planet Fund to make our work possible. Thank you for all that you do to promote uniquely sustainable development.”
— Trans Fair USA
“With the seed money from the Small Planet Fund, Navdanya was able to start the Seeds of Hope campaign in the “suicide belt” of Vidharbha to create freedom for farmers from GMO Bt Cotton, freedom from debt and freedom from suicide. Today farmers of Vidharbha have gone organic and are earning ten times more than the Bt cotton farmers. Thank you.”

How Far Your Money Goes
Because we are a volunteer-driven fund, more than 90 percent of each dollar donated goes directly to our grantees. Here is how far our dollars go:
$1,500 to the Family Farm Defenders: Covers the costs of a used tractor for a farmers’ cooperative in the Gulf to assist with hurricane recovery
$1,000 to the Green Belt Movement: Assists to rehabilitate one hectare of threatened forests
$500 to the Center for Ecoliteracy: Sends five public teachers from underserved communities to sustainable education trainings with the Center for Ecoliteracy
$100 to the Navdanya Farmers Network: Ensures an additional Navdanya organic farmer receives training and resources to earn an additional $100 per acre
$50 to the Landless Workers Movement: Provides six months of literacy training for a formerly landless worker in a community settlement
These are just some of the ways our donations are put to good use. Through our ongoing connection with our grantees, we are assured that every dollar is spent wisely and well.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU
We’d like to especially thank the wonderful Dan Zanes whose music embodies the spirit of the Fund and who graciously contributes a portion of the sales of the CD House Party to the Small Planet Fund. We’d also like to thank our major donors and event co-sponsors who keep the fund going year-after-year.
