Who We Are

Heifer Foundation Mission

Heifer Foundation envisions a sustainable world where hunger and poverty no longer exist. Our mission is to grow and oversee an endowment to support the work of Heifer International. To that end, Heifer Foundation offers a variety of planned charitable giving instruments that provide individuals from all walks of life the ability to help themselves, their loved ones, and a world in great need.

Founded in 1991 by Heifer International’s Board of Directors, Heifer Foundation has developed, and continues to manage, an endowment to support the work of Heifer International. While Heifer Foundation and Heifer International are separate non-profit charitable organizations with distinct purposes, they are global partners that work closely together to support a common mission while meeting the unique individual needs of donors.


Heifer International – Our Global Partner
Heifer International was founded on a simple belief: ending hunger begins with giving people the means to feed themselves. Since 1944, Heifer has helped more than 20.7 million hungry families in the United States and 125 other countries move toward self-reliance through the gift of food- and income-producing animals.
