Monsanto Fund Announces New Award Program

The Monsanto Fund is excited to bring the America’s Farmers Grow Communities Project to your community. This program, which Monsanto Company initially rolled out to counties in Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas, was created as a unique new way to support local farm communities. The program has been extended to select counties in California, Kansas, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina and South Dakota.

This is a great opportunity for farmers in eligible counties to win the right to direct a $2,500 donation from Monsanto Fund to a local nonprofit organization.  All they have to do is complete a short entry form at www.growcommunities.com or call 1.877.267.3332.  One winner per county will be selected at random for each eligible county and announced in August 2010.

Farmers, age 21 and over, who are actively engaged in farming a minimum of 250 acres of corn, soybeans and/or cotton, or 40 acres of open field vegetables, or at least 10 acres of tomatoes, peppers and/or cucumbers grown in protected culture, are eligible.  The application period expires on July 31, 2010.  The program is open to all qualifying farmers, and no purchase is necessary to enter or win.  Monsanto Fund will announce winning farmers and recipient organizations that are important to them and their communities.
