HELP TO NONPROFITS: As part of the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, farmers will direct more than $3 million of financial support to eligible nonprofits across rural America in 2017.
Since the program began in 2010, the America's Farmers Grow Communities program has awarded more than $22 million in donations to a broad cross-section of organizations that reflect the makeup and character of rural America, including emergency response organizations, schools, youth agriculture programs and many others. That includes over $1.5 million awarded to nonprofits in Nebraska.
"We are excited to team up with farmers once again to help support the causes that mean the most to them and that have an impact in their local communities," says Al Mitchell, Monsanto Fund president. "Because of their commitment to this program, thousands of nonprofit organizations have been able to enhance the important programs and services they provide, having a positive impact on the communities they serve."
Eligible farmers can enroll or learn more about the program by visiting its website, or calling 877-267-3332. Additional information can also be found on Facebook at facebook.com/AmericasFarmersGrowCommunities.
The America's Farmers Grow Communities program is part of the Monsanto Fund's America's Farmers Community Outreach initiative. Since 2010, the America's Farmers Community Outreach programs have worked with farmers to support rural America through their local community groups, youth and schools.
