Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities
Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities (ACFGC) is a grants program initiated by The Bayer Fund in partnership with the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR). It aims to help support local communities in cotton growing regions. Cotton growers are able to nominate a community group or not-for-profit organisation to receive one of thirty $5,000 grants.
The grants are targeted at grassroots community groups and projects so often leave a legacy, such as a piece of infrastructure, equipment, or an event that can continue beyond the initial grant.
The ACFGC program benefits people living and working in rural communities: these are the people who work hard to feed and clothe the country and the world.
