America’s Farmers Grow Communities is providing additional financial support to farming communities impacted by drought.
Monsanto’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities program is offering funding to aid farmers and rural communicates who have been impacted by the 2012 drought.
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 and other civic groups. One winner will be selected in each of the 1,271 eligible counties in 39 states.
This year, additional financial support is available to farming communities impacted by drought. Counties that have been declared disaster areas by the USDA due to drought, are eligible an additional $2,500 donation.
Monsanto’s Gayla Daugherty explains the program:
The deadline for entries is Nov. 30.
