Since 1964, the Monsanto Fund has worked to substantially and meaningfully improve people’s lives. Just as Monsanto Company has been the leader in innovative and sustainable agriculture, the Monsanto Fund has worked to be an innovative philanthropic leader, providing sustainable assistance to communities in need.
As agriculture evolves, so does the Monsanto Fund's efforts to improve the lives of people around the world by providing resources to meet their needs.
Monsanto Fund has partnered with more than 6,000 schools and 12,000 organizations in 47 countries across six continents. This work has led to over 15,000 community grants around the world that have improved educational resources, addressed critical needs and made millions of meals possible. The Monsanto Fund has invested millions in the communities where farmers and Monsanto Company employees live and work, including grants totaling more than $24M in 2016 alone.
Monsanto Fund strengthens both farming/rural communities and the communities where Monsanto employees live and work. Our primary focus is to assist families in under-resourced areas within the communities served, with an emphasis on children.
