Funders

A dozen European and international foundations, with interests spanning health, climate, animal welfare, just transitions and biodiversity, have contributed to supporting the movement since we started in 2020. Some Funders have both contributed to the pooled fund and devoted staff time to the HFHP co-creation process, others have provided funding. Between 2020 and 2022, contributors to the pooled fund have included the Wellcome Trust, Oak Foundation and ClimateWorks Foundation.

In addition to those contributing to the pooled fund, there are foundations whose funding is aligned with the strategic framework. We call them aligned funders, and they include the European Climate Foundation and the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation.

The total funding available for HFHP in 2022 is €2,895,000, which is for grant making, (un-)learning and movement building. On top of this there is a similar amount in aligned funding as per the visual.

We are also working closely with other funder networks such as EFSAF, the European Foundations for Sustainable Agriculture and Food, to coordinate our efforts geared at transforming Europe’s food and agriculture systems.  

Proposed Funding Flow

We are currently discussing and co-creating our governance structure, aiming for the grant making to be in service of movement building, focusing on collaboration & co-creation rather than competition. We are exploring participatory grant making for 2023, whereby a new body called the Kitchen Table would have funder and civil society representation. making final decisions over grant proposals that will be co-created in the lever Communities of Practice.

The below flow is an illustration.
