We currently grant over 70 countries and 6 continents- and growing. We use equitable and Trust-Based Philanthropy funding approaches.

What drives impact of the Thrive Food Systems Fund is its alliance of expert Regional Funding Steering Committees.

Regional Funding Steering Committees impart expertise and lived experience in local food systems and in-depth access to local advocate networks.

By utilizing regional experts, advocates, and networks, Thrive ensures funding allocation is regionally effective and culturally appropriate, and that we avoid risk of Western colonialism or inequitable funding practices.

In addition to the Regional Funding Steering Committees, the Thrive Food Systems Fund is guided by a straightforward strategy, a CEO with 1.5 decades’ experience in equitable global grantmaking, and a team with a collective 50+ years in food systems change work.


The Thrive Food Systems Fund strategy is straightforward. By tapping into regional expertise and networks, we ensure funding is directed as effectively as possible to increase food systems work across the world, thereby reducing our global reliance on harmful industrialized farming and increasing just, healthy, plant-based food systems.
