Bayer Fund supports communities where our employees live and work by investing in programs providing community development support. Grants are awarded for projects focused on performing arts (St. Louis, MO only), youth development (after school and summer programs, with priority placed on STEM or agriculture programs) and public safety.
We accept Community Development applications from invited organizations in eligible communities twice per year. Cycle 1 is open from January 1 - February 28, 11:59:59pm Central Time (funding decisions made in May/June) and Cycle 2 is open from July 1 - August 31, 11:59:59pm CT (funding decisions made in November/December).
NOTE: Invitation codes for Cycle 2 grants (July-Aug) have been issued in all U.S. communities except for St. Louis, MO. To request an invitation code for St. Louis-based organizations, email your program information and request to firstname.lastname@example.org. For all other communities, please check this website again in December to view programs available in 2020.
Applications to Bayer Fund are by invitation only.
Bayer Fund is hosting a one-hour conference call to give grant seekers an opportunity to have their questions about the program answered, and to provide some tips on grant writing. We encourage prospective grantees to participate. You will need to register prior to joining a call. The link to register is included as a hyperlink in the date of the call below. Once you register, you will receive an email with the web link, dial-in number and the Conference ID number. Callers may log in to the web link that will be provided in order to view the slides which will highlight discussion items, but this is not required.
