If you’re a philanthropic farmer looking for a way to assist your community, you may want to take advantage of the ‘America’s Farmers Grow Communities’ program.
The initiative, which is sponsored by the Bayer Fund, empowers farmers to nourish and enrich their neighborhoods by giving back to important nonprofit organizations.
Farmers have until November 1st to enroll. In order to be eligible to apply, you have to be 21-years-of-age or older and must be actively farming 250 acres or more.
By enrolling, you could potentially receive the opportunity to direct a $2,500 donation to an eligible nonprofit of your choice.
In the last 10 years, the Grow Communities Program has awarded $33 million to more than 8,000 nonprofits across rural America. Through this program, Ag producers have been able to help fund a number of organizations, including food banks, efforts focused on flood relief, community centers and fire and EMS workers.
