Over $19 Million Awarded to Rural  Communities

Since 2010, with the help of farmers, America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, has awarded over $19 million, to over 7,000 nonprofit organizations across rural America.

The program offers farmers the chance to win a $2,500 donation to direct toward their favorite community nonprofit organization, to help feed the hungry, purchase life saving EMS equipment, support ag youth, buy classroom resources and more. One winner is selected in each of the 1,326 counties in 40 states. The official rules for America’s Farmers Grow Communities are available here.

Farmer enrollment for 2016 is open now open through November 30. Connect with Grow Communities on Facebook or on twitter #GrowCommunities.
