About the program

Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities will be open for nominations again soon! Visit again for updates.  

Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities is a grant 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.

Through the program, farmers can 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 initiatives that are important to the community to get a funding boost.

What a fantastic outcome from one of our grant recipients! Thanks to @FRRR for sharing this wonderful story ...

We recently received a lovely message from Lucinda Stump who was very proud to share some wonderful news about the Burren Junction Public School. The Burren Junction Public School's P&C Association received an Aussie #Cotton Growers Grow Communities grant last year, funded by the Monsanto Foundation to engage a specialist music, song, drama and dance teacher for one year to extend learning opportunities. The idea was that students wouldl write and perform their own musical for the whole community. The play is now being written, and the students have started their singing lessons and are making great headway - they recently entered in the small schools choir section at the Narrabri Eisteddfod, and WON! Congratulations to everyone involved, and thanks for the update Lucinda. If you would like to share information about a grant that your community organisation has received from FRRR, we'd love to hear from you - tag us FRRR, or send us a message.
