Monsanto reprises Grow Communities program
Now in its fourth consecutive year, America's Farmers Grow Communities will give farmers the opportunity to win a $2,500 donation for their favorite local nonprofit organizations.
Register for a chance to donate to your favorite nonprofit organization online at GrowCommunities.com. The deadline for eligible farmers to enter is Nov. 30. In December, the Monsanto Fund will then select one winner at random in each eligible countyand announce winning farmers and recipient nonprofits in January 2014.
New to the Grow Communities program last year is the chance for community members to "plant" their ideas. Rural community members can now visit the Grow Communities website and submit an idea or initiative in need of funding. Eligible farmers are able to review planted ideas and consider them in their registrations.
Farmers have helped fund more than 5,200 nonprofit organizations in rural America through America's Farmers Grow Communities. Farmers and rural community members can visit GrowCommunities.com and register to win or submit an idea in need of funding. This program is part of the Monsanto Fund's overall effort to support rural communities.
