RAFI partners with 1 % for the Planet


In May of 2013, RAFI was selected as a new non-profit partner of 1% for the Planet, an alliance of over 1,400 member companies in 38 countries that give one percent of revenues to environmental causes. We are honored to join more than 2,000 organizations worldwide who share our commitment to sustainability.

RAFI’s mission is to cultivate markets, policies and communities that support thriving, socially-just, and environmentally-sound family farms. RAFI is now one of thirteen 1% for the Planet national organizations based in the state of North Carolina.

RAFI will appear in the network’s charity database under the following relevant grant categories: Biodiversity, Climate Change, Development, Resource Extraction and Sustainable Agriculture/Farming. To learn more about the organization visit the ‘about us’ section of the website.

Since its inception in 2002, the 1% for the planet network has become one of the largest funders of environmental work around. Members of the network make donations directly to the nonprofit(s) of their choice. While 1% does not serve as an intermediary in this process, the network is responsible for certifying that donations are made and vetting nonprofit organizations to ensure their work contributes to a healthier planet.

How you can participate:

  • As a current member of the 1% network, we encourage you to support RAFI’s work by making a monetary contribution to the organization.
  • As a consumer, we encourage you to support the brands and businesses that have made this commitment. Just look for the 1% “member” logo on their marketing or use the network’s online member directory.
  • As a company or business, we encourage you to consider joining the 1% network.
