Our rural focussed investment program is aimed at fortifying the communities where growers and their families live. The goal of this program is to provide local non-profit organizations with funding so that they can continue to transform and support the communities they operate in.
Since 2012, the program has provided over 60 grants amounting to over $1.1 million in grants to charities and non-profit groups that were nominated by Canada’s farmers.
You don’t have to be a farmer to suggest a local charity in your rural community. Your suggestions will be presented to farmers who are looking to nominate a charity or non-profit organization. The program has helped support agricultural advocacy groups, 4-H clubs, children’s parks, community institutions and other service organizations.
