Pine Cone Foundation micro-grants are designed to provide a financial boost to those looking to build long-term careers in agriculture, ranching, aquaculture, and fishing enterprises. Grant funding may support completing a project, purchasing a new piece of equipment, and improving infrastructure.
In 2022, we bestowed grants to three fantastic applicants ranging from $1,500 to $3,500, and in 2023 we will be offering five to six grants (winners will be announced during the December 4th week).
These grants are available to farmers, ranchers, artisanal fisheries, and aquaculture purveyors of all races and gender identities. To ensure that our grants are contributing to ending systemic inequity in access to these careers, we commit to providing a minimum of 50% of our grants to Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, and 50% of grants to female-identifying, non-binary, and trans farmers.
