Monsanto Company Donates to Greensburg

PRATT, Kan. — Monsanto Company has donated $50,000 toward the Greensburg Future Fund to help rebuild the community devastated by a tornado. The donation will help rebuild schools, health services, and libraries that were destroyed by the tornado after the clean up is complete.

"We are so grateful that Monsanto recognizes that the needs in Greensburg will continue long past the initial disaster," said Denise Unruh, South Central Community Foundation director.

The Greensburg Future Fund was established through the South Central Community Foundation to help the community rebuild. South Central Community Foundation (SCCF) is a community foundation whose seven-county area includes Kiowa
County. The Greensburg Future Fund is a "pass through" fund with 100 percent of the donated dollars going to Greensburg projects.

Monsanto Company is a leading global provider of technology-based solutions and agricultural products that improve farm productivity and food quality. Monsanto Company is a global business headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri.

With the Greensburg community struggling to rebuild, public institutions such as schools will be critical to the town's success. Monsanto Company has set the bar in terms of contributing to the town's future. It's nice to see a global business like Monsanto take an interest in smaller communities, particularly those in most serious need.
