1,331 counties x $2,500
Every August, eligible farmers can apply for the chance to win a $2,500 grant to pass on to the local non-profit organization of their choosing.
175 schools x $10,000 and up in grants
Following a local farmer’s nomination, we challenge schools to design projects aimed at enhancing STEM curriculum in their districts. Upon review, the winning school districts are awarded either $10,000 or $25,000 grants.
352 scholarships x $1,500
Each year we ask farmers to endorse high school seniors or college students in their communities for a chance to win a $1,500 scholarship to support their higher education studies in ag-related fields.
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
