The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently announced that it will increase its budget for farming projects by 50 percent this year as food prices soar around the globe. 

According to its website the foundation will inject  the additional funds into existing projects designed to help farmers cultivate more resilient crops, and helping producers gain better access to markets for their products. The Foundation, created in 1994, focused initially on health and
education. In May 2006 it launched a call for a "Green Revolution" in
Africa.
