Community Outreach

Giving is a natural part of what we do at Monsanto. Through our global volunteer programs, Monsanto employees generously donate more than 100,000 hours annually to support local communities. We support a wide-range of capital projects, with priority given to those that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), malnutrition, and economic growth within the biosciences. Additionally, Monsanto has supported disaster relief efforts as well as initiatives that not only have broad impact, but also have the potential to transform communities. As a company, we are committed to making lives better and moving agriculture forward.

Monsanto Fund

As the philanthropic arm of Monsanto, the Monsanto Fund is focused on strengthening farming communities as well as the communities where our employees live and work. Since 1964, the Monsanto Fund has worked to substantially and meaningfully improve people’s lives. Monsanto Fund focus areas include:

  • Food & Nutrition Security – Supporting high quality Food & Nutrition programs that address malnutrition by helping to ensure access and use of nutritious food. The portfolio includes high impact programs and projects that use a comprehensive sustainable approach to increase access and use of nutritious foods, striving towards long-term behavior change to address undernutrition and hunger.  

  • Education – Supporting high quality K-12 educational programs by nonprofit organizations that enable access to knowledge and empower students and teachers in communities around the world, with a focus on furthering STEM education. This includes, but is not limited to, supporting schools, farmer training programs, and academic programs that enrich or supplement school programs.

  • Community Development – Supporting programs in the areas of Youth Development which provide young people opportunities to enhance their skills and interests through exposure to STEM or agriculture, public safety projects in rural and under-resourced areas needing sanitation, access to clean water and public safety, and performing arts programs that support the arts through education or access to live productions.

In addition to our targeted focus areas, the Monsanto Fund supports local communities in the U.S. through an Employee Matching Gift program and contributions to numerous charitable organizations such as the United Way.
