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's mission is to end hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth. Since 1944, Heifer International has helped more than 18.5 million families by providing livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle daily for reliable sources of food and income. Heifer is currently working in more than 40 countries, including the United States, to help families and communities become more self-reliant. For more information, visit www.heifer.org.
