For over 10 years, Bayer Fund has been donating grants valuing up to 60 million dollars to various nonprofits, schools, and agricultural youth programs, through a program called “America’s Farmers Grow Communities”. The goal of this program is simply to support rural communities. These grants have been put towards everything from school supplies and educational materials, to food bank support programs. Bayer believes the farmer knows best where investments should be made in the community, which is why the program asks farmers to enroll and help direct the funds.
If you are a farmer and have been served well by a nonprofit program in your area, then considering enrolling in the America’s Farmers Grows Communities program. This year the largest grants yet will be donated through the initiative, at $5,000 each. To be considered eligible for enrollment in the program, you must be 21 years of age or older, and actively maintaining a minimum of 250 acres of farmland.
