Strengthening Farm Communities
We believe farmers know best which institutions and programs in their communities deserve funding, so the Bayer Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer, partners with them to direct grant money through the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program. Since 2010, America’s Farmers has awarded more than $63 million to organizations across rural America.
Farming isn’t just about growing more, it’s about leaving the earth better than the way we found it. And in many cases, that means using fewer resources more sustainably. But farmers are finding it increasingly difficult to conserve resources and protect the earth when demand continues to rise.
Bayer is helping farmers and their communities rise to the occasion by developing seeds, tools, and traits that produce more crops per acre.
Access to health and food is a fundamental human right, yet many face the reality of not having enough to eat. Farmers and food banks play a vital role in addressing food insecurity – especially in rural communities Bayer Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer, grant programs and a variety of other initiatives support food and nutrition programs that target under-served communities, rural communities, and families in need.
Partnering for Change: Luke Bryan #HeresToTheFarmer
Since 2015, Bayer has partnered with Luke Bryan as a presenting sponsor of the country artist’s farm tour to celebrate farmers and fight hunger through the #HeresToTheFarmer campaign. For every share of the hashtag during the campaign window, Bayer provides one meal through the Feeding America network, up to 1 million meals to communities in need.
Health for All Hunger for None is a massive goal that requires all hands on deck. So, Bayer participates constructively and transparently in the political process to give us the best chance at fulfilling our mission serving our customers’ needs.
