About the Program:

America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, improves lives in rural communities through farmer directed donations. The program, which launched in 2010, allows farmers to enter to win $2,500 for their favorite community nonprofit organization, such as 4-H, FFA, schools, fire departments, food pantries and more. One winner is selected in each of the 1,324 eligible counties across 40 states.

Rural communities are the heart of America. It’s where we find the people who work hard to feed, fuel and clothe our country and the world. Our community outreach programs focus on strengthening the rural communities where farmers and their families live and work. We partner with farmers to determine where $2,500 will be donated within their community. Farmers know best and choose the nonprofit organization in their community where the donation will make the most impact.

People in eligible counties have the opportunity to suggest an idea or initiative for a farmer to consider in his/her America’s Farmers Grow Communities entry. Plant Your Idea here. You will need the name of your nonprofit organization and a brief description of the project.
