Our Engagement

Strengthening Rural Communities

Rural communities are the backbone and the heartbeat of America, and helping them thrive is important to us. That’s why we work hard to support farmers through philanthropic initiatives tailored and targeted to help rural communities nationwide.

Bayer also has a proud legacy of programs in place to help boost rural communities. The America’s Famers programs sponsored by Bayer Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer, include three important community outreach programs that help farmers more easily fund nonprofit organizations and educational efforts in their local communities.


They include:


Strengthening Rural Communities


Since 2010, these three programs have awarded more than $59 million to nonprofit organizations, schools, and ag youth organizations across rural America. From 3D printers and STEM education for small schools, to new equipment for rural firefighters, to funding food banks in underserved areas, the America’s Farmers programs help lift up and support rural communities, one grant at a time. 


Thanks to Bayer Fund, we are able to help our community in ways that we weren’t able to do before. We take care of each other.
