Slow Money is bringing people together around a shared vision of what it means to be an investor in the 21st century.

Grantee Profile

Thousands of Americans have begun affirming a new direction for the food system and the economy. It’s called Slow Money. Inspired by the vision of Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing As If Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered, published in 2009, Slow Money is bringing people together around a new conversation about money that is too fast, about finance that is disconnected from people and place, about how we can begin fixing our economy from the ground up, starting with food. Since its founding in 2010, Slow Money has helped to direct over $5 million to sustainable food enterprises through its National Gatherings, has more than doubled its membership, and has seen roughly a dozen local chapters emerge.

About Our Grants

The Woodcock Foundation’s 2011 grant to Slow Money will support a range of programs designed to connect investors and entrepreneurs with farmers and local food leaders.
