Monsanto’s America’s Farmers Grow Rural Communities

Farmers can nominate their favorite local charity to win up to $2,500 as part of the America’s Farmers Grow Communities Program.  The Monsanto Fund is sponsoring the grants.  Monsanto customer advocacy outreach manager Heather Wolfe says the program is in its 4th year and is a direct response to farmers asking for more financial support to grow their rural communities.

She says farmers are encouraged to nominate non-profit organizations through the end of November.

Nominations can be made online at growcommunities.com. Last year 90 rural organizations in South Dakota received donations.
