Farmers Make a Difference in Rural Communities by Directing Donations from Monsanto Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities Program to Local Nonprofit Organizations

• The America’s Farmers Grow Communities program will provide more than $3 million in financial support to nonprofits across the US in 2017
• Since 2010, the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program has given more than $...26 million to more than 8,000 nonprofits across rural America.

Beaver Springs, PA (May 25, 2017) – Snyder County farmer, Jason Godek has won the opportunity to direct a $2,500 dollar donation from the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, to Beaver Community Fair.
Beaver Community Fair will use the funds towards the construction of a new livestock arena and barn on the fairgrounds.
“The fair has outgrown its current show arena and is in need of new pen options for the animals shown by the numerous 4-H and FFA exhibitors. Jason’s thoughtfulness will put us one step closer to our fundraising goal", said Carol Hoffman [Beaver Community Fair Livestock Manager].
The Grow Communities program’s purpose is to make a positive impact in farm communities by partnering with farmers to support the causes that are important to them in their communities. Each year, farmers enter for a chance to win a $2,500 donation that they direct to a local nonprofit.
Since the program began in 2010, farmers have directed more than $26 million in donations across a broad cross-section of organizations that reflect the makeup and character of rural America, including food banks, emergency response organizations, schools, youth agriculture programs and many others.
“Farmers have directed funds to more than 8,000 community organizations across rural America since Grow Communities began,” said Al Mitchell, Monsanto Fund president. “Farmers are truly committed to this program because they see the difference the donation makes in their community.”
