Staff / The Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of the Monsanto Company, has launched Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities, a new program aimed at strengthening rural communities by providing the opportunity for farmers to secure a $2,500 grant for their favourite community charity or not-for-profit organization.
From June 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2012, eligible farmers across Canada will have the opportunity to nominate a local charity or not-for-profit group in their community by visiting www.CanadasFarmers.com.
Two $2,500 grants will be awarded in each of 29 different territories across the grain-growing regions of northeastern B.C. (Peace River district), Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
Complete program details and terms and conditions are available at www.Canadas Farmers.com.
