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.

The nominations period for 2020 has closed. Successful grant recipients will be announced on 20 November 2020.
