Organic farming works.

Research proves organic farming practices help reverse the negative effects of climate change, improve human health for farmers, farm workers, and consumers, and provide nutritious, pesticide-free food for a growing population. Organic is a better solution.

We put farmers first.

The Organic Farming Research Foundation funds on-farm organic research, shares results and best practices in free farmer-friendly materials, and champions the voices of organic farmers on Capitol Hill. It’s our goal to ensure organic research is given a fair share of public funding and shared resources.

We can’t do this alone.

We need your help. We don’t charge membership dues or collect association fees. We fundraise for every dollar, and we make sure those dollars go directly to on-farm research, educational programs, and advocacy on behalf of organic farmers and ranchers. Your gift ensures organic farmers get the information and resources they need to be successful. For free.

Many donors are surprised to learn how beneficial stock donations are and that you can make an even greater impact on our work by making a stock gift. Making a gift with appreciated securities will provide you a charitable deduction for the full value of the gift, whereas if you were to liquidate the assets and make a cash gift, you would be responsible for paying capital gains tax. Donating stock may allow you to contribute more than you normally would if you were giving cash due to the tax savings.

To make a gift of stock, simply complete this stock gift form, and provide the information to your broker. Please let us know about your gift so we can acknowledge you properly!



You and your co-workers can make a huge difference to support the growth of organic farming in the U.S.

Programs like EarthShare and 1% for the Planet make giving your donation easy with automatic deductions for OFRF.
