ST. LOUIS — After two years of success, the Bayer Grain for Good™ Program transitions to America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by Bayer Fund, which will continue to support communities across rural America. Through the Grain for Good Sweepstakes, which began in 2018, the Bayer Cereal Experts donated $100,000 to 20 non-profit organizations designated by cereal growers throughout the country.
“As the Bayer Cereal Experts, we have been thrilled with growers’ engagement in the Grain for Good program over the past couple years. We feel incredibly thankful to have had the opportunity to positively influence the communities in which we live and work,” said Kevin Cencula, Bayer cereals marketing manager. “We are beyond excited to continue that impact as part of America’s Farmers Grow Communities, and support even more organizations than ever before.”
This spring, America’s Farmers Grow Communities is awarding more than one thousand $2,500 donations to non-profits to help strengthen rural America.
The program will kick-off again August 1, 2020, giving eligible growers the opportunity to enroll to win funds to support a local eligible non-profit organization. To be eligible, growers must be 21 years old or older and actively engaged in farming at least 250 acres of any crop. Grower winners will be randomly selected and announced in January 2021.
America’s Farmers, sponsored by Bayer Fund, is focused on strengthening rural America through three community outreach programs that partner with growers to make an impact in their rural communities. Since 2010, America’s Farmers programs have given more than $53 million and include: Grow Communities, Grow Rural Education and Grow Ag Leaders.
