For nearly 10 years we have proudly partnered with America’s farmers to help grow farming communities.
Farmers know best where a $2,500 donation will make the biggest impact in their hometown and every August, America’s Farmers Grow Communities offers farmers the opportunity to enroll for a chance to win a $2,500 donation to direct toward their favorite community nonprofit organization. The program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer, awards more than 1,300 donations to eligible nonprofit organizations each year.
In the past, Americas farmers have directed funds to thousands of local nonprofits that strengthen farming communities from supporting ag youth organizations, to purchasing classroom supplies, to supplying food and essentials for the needy and acquiring lifesaving emergency response equipment. It’s all about strengthening rural communities.
2019 winning farmers will be announced in January 2019.
Since 2010, the Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer, has awarded over $29 million to more than 8,000 nonprofits across rural America.
See how these funds are making a difference in rural farming communities across America.
