How we are funded
The Charity receives its funding from a range of sources.
Members and donors
Through the generosity of individual supporters we can continue our campaigning activity, influence policy setting and communicate our key messages.
Charitable trusts and foundations
We are fortunate to receive funding from a number of trusts and foundations who share in our vision and for whom we undertake programmes of work.
Statutory funders and the public sector
We work with statutory funders such as the Big Lottery on a number of initiatives and we are regularly engaged across the public sector by the likes of Local Authorities, NHS and the UK and Scottish Governments to deliver both local and national contracts.
Organisations choosing to be certified and licensed through Soil Association Certification Limited are working with a business partner whose activities not only further our charitable aims both also provide financial support to the Charity.
Private sector organisations
A number of carefully selected private sector organisations fund our work through event sponsorship, corporate donations and helping with specific campaigns. And increasingly there is growing interest in our charitable initiatives from private sector operators within education and care settings and from within the farming industry.
