Become A Member! Join the Movement

New Membership Price Changes went into effect Sept 1st, 2019.  

We hope that you become an active member and utilize the many resources that the Federation and State Associations have to offer. FSC/LAF has been working since 1967 to provide technical assistance, training, marketing, fundraising, and advocacy to a membership of cooperatives and credit unions comprised of primarily African-American small farmers, timber landowners across the rural South, and low and moderate-income families interested in self-help economic development activities like credit unions, housing, and worker cooperatives.


The membership desk is specifically charged with maintaining contact with cooperative and individual members and serving as a focal point for their communications with the FSC/LAF. We encourage support of our efforts through one of the following membership categories: 1) Individual Membership $50 annually; 2) Individual Lifetime Membership $1000; 3) Cooperative Membership $300 annually. All members receive a membership card with a number and are eligible for all services offered by the FSC/LAF. Individual membership is encouraged as a way for non­ farmers as well as individual farmers to support the Federation.      Please email the form to
