ST. LOUIS, Mo. (NMB) – This year the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program will once again partner with Montana farmers to find and fund local nonprofits that make a positive impact in their rural communities. A press release says Grow Communities invites farmers to enroll in the program for a chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a local eligible nonprofit organization of their choice.
The donations will provide support to a variety of rural nonprofit organizations that have made a positive impact on the health and vibrancy of their local communities, such as food banks, emergency response organizations, community enrichment and youth agriculture programs, among others. In Montana alone, more than $57,500 in monetary donations have been made to local nonprofits that positively impact communal wellbeing in farming communities.
