2Blades is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization. Our non-profit structure allows us to undertake solutions to difficult problems for broad social benefit. We work hard to make our funds have the most impact, limiting overhead expenditures in our  development programs to a 10% cap.  We earn income to fund a portion of our expenses by licensing resistance traits at fair market value for commercial crops which aids in offsetting costs for programs for subsistence agriculture which are given away at no cost. 

The majority of our funding comes from generous individuals and foundations, who recognize our ability to seek and deliver solutions. Contact Diana Horvath for information.
