FFAR’s Model

FFAR has a flexible and nimble model that makes it exceptionally positioned to facilitate the unique partnerships necessary to fund research in the pre-competitive space.

By bringing together experts from the academic, public, private, and non-governmental sectors together, it enables discussion and discovery to offer solutions to our increasingly unstable food system. With FFAR’s unique connections to the public sector as well as its dedication to innovation, the potential to impact the world of food and agriculture is limitless.

FFAR seeks contributors to help leverage the $200M provided by the 2014 Farm Bill. FFAR can match $1 for $1 contributions made directly to FFAR by non-federal, external public, private and non-profit sector contributors to support programs and activities. By partnering in support of FFAR’s mission, you join us in tackling today’s challenges in food and agriculture. Your involvement will directly support the nation’s investment in applicable and cutting-edge research.

By investing with FFAR you become a central partner in essential agricultural research and development.
