A Legacy Rooted in Cooperative Development, Land Retention, and Advocacy

52 YEARS OF MOVEMENT BUILDING

There are four major themes of the Federation's mission, work, and accomplishments over the past five decades. Our performance in these areas is key to evaluating our success and strength over this sustained period. The central themes of our mission are:

 

To develop cooperatives and credit unions as a means for people to enhance the quality of their lives and improve their communities;

        

To save, protect and expand the landholdings of Black family farmers in the South;

 

To develop a unique and effective Rural Training and Research Center to provide information, skills, and awareness, in a cultural context, to help our members and constituents to build strong rural communities;

 

To develop, advocate and support public policies to benefit our membership of Black and other family farmers; and the low-income rural communities where they live.

The Federation is a non-profit cooperative association of black farmers, landowners, and cooperatives.  We are not able to do this work without multiple sources of support. Our funding sources include state and federal agencies, foundations, churches, cooperatives, corporations, individual donors and our membership. Donating to our cause is an investment in our work to support limited resources farmers, landowners and cooperatives.
