One Acre Fund Wins Draper Richards Grant (2007)
The Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation carefully funds the best early-stage nonprofit organizations. In 2007, they awarded One Acre Fund $100,000 per year for three years. The rigorous application process involved a panel of twelve top agricultural leaders and references, who all believed in our basic program model of investing in farmers to end poverty. The grant served as a call to action, providing the overhead and capacity for significant program expansion.
