About the program

The 2017 round of Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities is open for nominations soon!

Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities is a grants program initiated by the Monsanto Fund in partnership with the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR). It aims to help support local communities in cotton growing regions.

The program allows farmers to nominate a community group or not-for-profit organisation to receive one of thirty $5,000 grants. This is a great opportunity for groups or projects that are important to the community to apply for a funding boost.

NOMINATIONS OPEN 30 JUNE 2017

Great to see how Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities Grant's have benefited PRAMS in Gunnedah. Real grants having a real impact! Nominations for Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities open for 2017 on 30 June #cottongrants FRRR ...

FRRR's Jacki Dimond met today with Paul Brady, Local Monsanto Company RBM, Melissa and Therese, nurses from the Gunnedah District Hospital and PRAMS executives. PRAMS (PaediatRic And Maternity Support) has raised over $650k for their local hospital. An FRRR Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities grant from 2017 enabled them to purchase the Bilisoft blanket (pictured) to support young babies born with jaundice. It now means new families have the opportunity to stay in Gunnedah rather than travelling to Tamworth with their new additions.
