For Terra Madre to be a reality, the contributions provided by our supporters are absolutely essential. Our partners are our most important collaborators and are deeply involved in the organization of the international gatherings of the food communities, which are made possible through their participation. Donors include all of our other types of supporters: from individuals who welcome food community delegates into their homes to small and large businesses that want to join in the Terra Madre adventure. Thanks to these sponsors, each contributing in their own way, this ambitious project has become a reality.

Other like-minded networks have formed around the project, like the network of Terra Madre Cities, made up of all the Italian towns who offer warm hospitality to the food communities. They actively participate in the project by providing financial support and hosting delegates from developing countries. A number of cities have also joined the project, realizing that the Terra Madre issues affect urban as well as rural life.
