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.

We were delighted to meet with Blushing Week during our visit to Toowoomba last week. Thank you for having us! ...

Recently Blush Cancer Care was successful in a $5,000 grant application to the Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities Fund. The grant program is an initiative of the Monsanto Fund and aims to help support local communities in Cotton Grower areas in New South Wales and Queensland. The grant will enable Blush Cancer Care to purchase five I-Pads loaded with educational/wellness information regarding breast cancer treatment and the recovery process. Information will be provided regarding wound management, nutrition, the latest breast cancer research, mindfulness, relaxation techniques and links to important health care resources. These I-Pads will be available for patients during their stay at St Andrew's Toowoomba Hospital and St Vincents Hospital following surgery and undertaking chemotherapy treatment. Representatives from Monsanto, Carissa Buckland and Helen Maccan (pictured), met with Blush Cancer Care Committee members today to find out more about the support provided to breast cancer patients on the Downs.
