About the program

Congratulations to all 2016 Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities grant recipients!

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.

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 initiatives that are important to the community to get a funding boost.

Toowoomba & District Down Syndrome Support Group is helping to shape the lives of those with Down Syndrome and their families. Find out how they'll use their Aussie Cotton Farmers grant to bring over 80 families together this March via aussiecottonfarmers.com.au/toowoomba-district-down-syndrome-support-group-helps-shape-the-lives-o...

Slightly off topic but worth a share none-the-less! ...

Do you know someone who has recently finished school and is looking to take a gap year in 2017? They may be interested in Cotton Gap - a program that supports and connects school leavers, linking them to opportunities in the cotton industry straight after school. Positions are still available in Queensland and NSW! More info: ow.ly/hGMN308220r

Fantastic to see Aussie Cotton Farmers grants bringing communities together. Thank you to the Bellata War Memorial Hall for sharing ...

The Bellata War Memorial Hall would like to thank Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities and FRRR for their grant of $5000.00 that went towards a purchase of a new movie screen and projector. It has brought much joy to the community. Thank you
