Foundations & Corporate Giving
Our funding comes primarily from individuals, but we also rely on generous contributions from a number of foundations and corporations that support specific programs and ongoing cost of operations. We would like to thank the following Foundations and Corporations for helping us achieve our mission.
PCC Natural Markets – PCC Farmland Trust was founded in 1999 by PCC Natural Markets as an independent nonprofit organization, with a separate Board of Directors and offices. PCC Natural Markets continues to help the Trust connect with thousands of people in the Puget Sound region who value organic food and the farmers who produce it.
The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation – The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation supports our Community Education Program, which brings people together to learn about farmland preservation and sustainable agriculture through public Farm Tours, the “On the Farm” series, and volunteer events.
The Seattle Foundation – The Seattle Foundation supports all three Farmland Trust programs though their Environmental Grantmaking Program and Donor Advised Funds.
The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation – The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation helped fund the Puyallup Valley Agricultural Corridor Project in 2012 which aims to permanently conserve threatened Puyallup Valley farmland for sustainable agricultural production, and help small, organic farms establish and sustain themselves in the long-term.
The Boeing Company’s Global Corporate Citizenship – The Boeing Company’s Global Corporate Citizenship program has provided generous financial support for the Trust’s Stewardship and Community Education programs, including support for capacity-building of the Trust’s volunteer program. Boeing volunteers also lend a helping hand at our Stewardship events.
Google Community Grants Fund – Through their Community Grants program, Kirkland and Seattle Google Employees support our Community Education and Stewardship Programs.
Microsoft – Microsoft generously matches their employees’ gifts to us. They also facilitate a successful on-farm volunteer event for their summer interns.
