Why ending hunger and poverty means so much to them …

The Impact of Your Support

You Can Make a Difference for Communities Facing Hunger and Poverty

The mission of Heifer Foundation is to raise and oversee financial assets to support the work of Heifer International.

Supporters of Heifer International are our partners in providing resources and training for smallholder farmers and their communities, both in the U.S. and across the globe. Our projects provide animals, training and basic necessities to help families lift themselves out of poverty. By empowering families in need with long-term solutions to hunger and poverty, Heifer has earned a place among the world’s most innovative and trusted charities.

Your gift will strengthen and sustain these core programs so that farmers benefit not just today, but for generations to come.

Your Investment

Heifer Foundation’s mission is to raise and oversee financial assets to support the work of Heifer International in helping people break free from a life of hunger and poverty. We offer donors a variety of ways to provide for themselves and their loved ones while helping communities across the world thrive.

Your investment in our endowment supporting Heifer International’s mission may be made through gifts of cash, property and stock, as well as with funds from bequests, trusts and annuities.

Carefully invested, each charitable contribution can have a long term impact that far exceeds the gift’s initial value.

With a portion of the endowment made available annually to Heifer International, your gift provides generous and lasting resources to improve the lives of people in need for generations to come.

Your Legacy of Change

More than half of the world’s working adults living in poverty work in agriculture.

Heifer International’s mission is to end hunger and poverty in partnership with the communities we serve. Our programs support agricultural entrepreneurs around the world, creating lasting change from the ground up.

Our community development model focuses on building social capital by increasing income and assets within farming families, improving food security and nutrition, and protecting the environment – built on a foundation of gender equity and community leadership.

This model, rooted in your generous planned gift, transforms communities.
