Invest in powerful civic infrastructure to ensure progress for rural communities.

Heartland Fund brings together local leaders with funders and national groups to build power together across the diverse communities of rural America. We support rural innovators through our funding, and by providing the tools they need to enact change.

With support from donors like you, we are raising millions while also identifying aligned funders who will match our grantmaking to maximize the impact and sustainability of our work.

We invest the majority of our resources in select states and regions where small city and rural efforts can create tangible improvements for their families and neighbors through policy change and increased civic participation. Our network also generates and shares tested narratives that help rural folks connect the dots between public policy and change they can see.

Join us as we invest in the potential of our small towns and rural communities. 

With Heartland Fund’s support, We the People Michigan added organizers who built power linked across rural and urban communities in Michigan to implement policies that change people’s lives and challenge the divide-and-conquer strategies that put our democracy at risk.
