Cash for Communities is a partnership between PGG Wrightson and Ballance Agri-Nutrients, which raises funds for rural schools and community organisations throughout New Zealand.

Over the past six years, the farming community has raised more than $455,000 for schools and charity organisations. The programme ran from 1 September to 30 November last year, with $1 donated for every tonne of qualifying Ballance fertiliser purchased by over 630 participating PGG Wrightson farming customers. Over $31,000 was raised for over 150 rural community organisations.

This year Cash for Communities will run again between 1 September to 30 November, with $1 for every tonne of Ballance Agri-Nutrients fertiliser purchased, donated to the school or Rescue Helicopter of your choice.

Give your school the chance to win iPads with the Cash for Communities 2017 Programme.

The school with the highest amount of nominations in both the North and South Island through Cash for Communities will receive three Apple iPad Pros (10.5 inch, 64GB) each. The school with the second highest amount of nominations in both the North and South Island will receive two Apple iPad Pros (10.5 inch, 64GB) each.

Our school is delighted to receive the Cash for Communities donation. These funds will be used towards additional resources that we would not otherwise be able to provide for our students. We would sincerely like to thank PGG Wrightson, Ballance Agri-Nutrients and the participating farmers for the opportunity to be involved in this wonderful initiative.
