DuPont Pioneer is pleased to announce a $5,000 donation to Farm Rescue, a North Dakota-based non-profit organization that plants and harvests crops free of charge for family farmers who have suffered a major injury, illness or disaster. The funds will be used to support the organization's work in 2014.

"We are proud to support the dedicated efforts of Farm Rescue and its volunteers who come to the aid of farm families in time of crisis in the Upper Midwest," said Matt Carlson, DuPont Pioneer account manager in Cleveland, N.D. and sponsor of the grant.

Farm Rescue was founded by Bill Gross in 2005 and has assisted more than 250 farm families in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and eastern Montana.

"We want to thank DuPont Pioneer for its generous gift. Only with the assistance of businesses, organizations and individuals like this can we continue to provide this service," said Bill Gross, president and founder of Farm Rescue.

Farm Rescue's mission is to help farmers who have experienced a major illness, injury, or natural disaster by providing the necessary equipment and manpower to plant or harvest their crop. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2014 planting season, which can be obtained at 701-252-2017 or

Pioneer makes contributions to community-based organizations on behalf of the business and employees. Consideration for outreach grants are given to communities where Pioneer representatives, employees and customers live and work and that support quality-of-life initiatives to create an improved, sustainable lifestyle for people worldwide.
