  • Transform communities by providing resources that promote socially sustainable values and activities.
  • Provide the tools for economic stability by enhancing the capacity of small-scale farmers, especially women, to secure their livelihoods.
  • Provide livestock, training, and natural resource management needed to strengthen the social, economic and ecological fabric of communities.
  • Improve families’ self-sufficiency by helping men and women sow and cultivate their future – including creating the surplus needed to feed their communities and the world.

FROM CUP TO COW, TO CULTIVATING THE FUTURE” to read “FROM CUP TO COW: CULTIVATING GENERATIONS OF HOPE FOR THE FUTURE

In 1938, an Ohio farmer named Dan West was directing a milk distribution to hungry refugee children when he thought, “They don’t need a cup. They need a cow.”

Six years later, West founded Heifer Project International, a charity working to end hunger and poverty and protect the earth. In the decades since, Heifer has helped 15.5 million families in more than 125 countries improve their quality of life and move toward greater self-reliance.

In 1991, Heifer International’s Board of Directors created Heifer Foundation, a separate nonprofit organization whose mission is to create, manage, and grow an endowment to secure Heifer’s ability to continue its mission well into the future.

Your investment in Heifer Foundation is an investment in bringing help and hope where it is needed most. Joining our supporters will help cultivate long-term, annual support for Heifer International’s work worldwide, touching the lives of millions of people in need.
