America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education helps farmers strengthen math and science education in local rural school districts. Currently in its second year, this program is part of the Monsanto Fund’s overall effort to support rural education and communities. America’s Farmers Grow Communities, which gives winning farmers the opportunity to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit organization in their county, is also part of this effort. To date, these programs combined have contributed more than $15 million to rural communities. To learn more about either program, please visit http://americasfarmers.com/.
