America’s Farmers is a movement dedicated to helping farmers take care of each other.

To date, $42 million has been contributed by the Monsanto Fund through the America's Farmers programs.

Through our family of programs, we empower farmers to nurture change: from the local organizations that fuel success to the young people who carry the torch.

The programs span a calendar year, and farmers may participate in as many as they wish. Our end goal is contagious community engagement.

All farmers are welcome to participate, regardless of the products they buy or the crops they grow. America’s Farmers enriches the places where farmers live and work; starting a cycle of caring for agriculture—not as a single person or company, but together.

This nationwide effort is made possible by the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of the Monsanto Company dedicated to strengthening the farm communities where farmers and Monsanto Company employees live and work. You can visit the Monsanto Fund at MonsantoFund.org
