At Bayer, we take great pride in giving back to the communities where we live, work and play. Social responsibility is about more than dollars and time donated; it’s about making meaningful impact on the lives of our neighbors and helping our communities thrive.
Our commitment is demonstrated across the U.S. through financial donations and volunteer initiatives that focus on the areas we believe will make the strongest impact: food and nutrition programs, STEM and agricultural education initiatives and community enhancement support.
Food and Nutrition Programs
Consumers deserve food that is healthy, safe, affordable – and grown in ways that empower local communities and respect our environment. As a global leader in agriculture, our aim is to help growers around the world protect their crops and enhance their potential to grow more food.
But we don’t stop there. Our support for food banks, soup kitchens and other community organizations across the U.S. helps impact immediate needs. We know hunger is not only occurring elsewhere in the world—it’s happening in our own backyards.
STEM and Agricultural Education Initiatives
Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) play important roles in almost every facet of our lives. However, research shows career interest in these fields is diminishing. If we can reach children at an early age, we can leave a lasting impression that will excite them about STEM careers and begin to mold the next generation of leaders.
Bayer’s award-winning Making Science Make Sense program advances science literacy across the United States through hands-on, inquiry-based learning, employee volunteerism, community partnerships and public education.
Community Enhancement Support
For communities, we know that one size does not fit all. Communities have a range of unique needs from first responder support to workforce and professional development, shelter resources, rehabilitation services and more. Our community enhancement initiatives touch many sectors of society that strengthen communities and help them grow in important ways.
