Supported organizations

Yggdrasil Land Foundation was incorporated as a "supporting organization" to support and work in association with three independent non-profit organizations: RSF Social Finance, the Biodynamic Association, and Michael Fields Agricultural Institute.  Yggdrasil is committed to upholding and advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion with, and through, its sister organizations (see BDA's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement ; and MFAI's Stance on Racial Justice).


RSF Social Finance is a financial services organization dedicated to revolutionizing how people relate to money. RSF provides opportunities for people to align their investing and giving with their values and connects social entrepreneurs with diverse forms of capital. We believe that people are served best by long-term financial relationships that are direct, transparent and personal. These relationships build the foundation for trust and collaboration to emerge, leading to long-term social, economic and ecological benefit. Since 1984, RSF has made over $450 million in loans, grants, and investments supporting social enterprises in the areas of food & agriculture, education & the arts, and ecological stewardship.

The Biodynamic Association awakens and enlivens co-creative relationships between humans and the earth, transforming the practice and culture of agriculture to renew the vitality of the earth, the integrity of our food, and the health and wholeness of our communities.

For over 30 years, Michael Fields Agricultural Institute has been a leading innovator in the movement for profitable, environmentally sound, socially responsible, and sustainable agriculture. Through research, education, advocacy and community engagement, Michael Fields helps empower farmers and consumers. We believe that responsible food and farming systems can help solve some of the most pressing environmental and societal problems of the 21st century.
