Website Technical Updates
Impact statement
This project will save us $3,757 , allowing us to continue to support climate resilient projects in small farmer communities!

Project Details

What We Need
  • Updates and/or fixes to Organization’s existing website (e.g., bug fixes, plugin or widget integration, etc.)
  • Training for up to 3 Organization staff members on how to resolve minor issues going forward (if applicable)
Additional Details

We have a few ideas for website plugins to have some interesting customizable options. We do tree planting and we would love to have the ability to generate some sort of certificate of planting. I would also like to explore the opportunity to create an interactive map with cooperatives/people we work with!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a full wordpress site and all background information, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a past website consultant, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We would love to have more interactive ways to engage folks with our mission and the small farmer cooperatives that we work with!

About The Org

Our Mission

We connect individuals and organizations directly to small-scale family farmer organizations in the global south through crowdfunding in order to support small-scale farmers address the challenge of climate change in their communities.

What We Do

We team up with local partners, primarily fair trade and organic farmer cooperatives and NGOs, who lead the development and implementation of climate resiliency projects. We intend to bridge the resource and funding gap and will work in four key areas:

1) Facilitating a revolving loan program for farmer-developed resiliency projects, such as soil conservation and yield-boosting compost operations.

2) Raising funds for annual regional Farmer-to-Farmer exchanges. These exchanges will facilitate farm leaders' ability to share successes and resources. They will also produce written and multimedia resources, encapsulating farmer experiences and "takeaways" to share with other farmers.

3) Providing funds and resources for farm leader "multiplier" agroecology scholarships. Grow Ahead raises funds earmarked specifically to provide scholarships for women farm leaders and trainers to attend farmer-centric agroecology schools.

4) Raising funds for agroforestry systems.
