The Monsanto 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).

Applications to the Monsanto Fund are by invitation only. If the project for which you are seeking support is located in an eligible community and if you do not have an invitation code, please request an invitation through our Contact Us page. Your local Monsanto Fund representative will be notified and will contact you with an invitation code if they are interested in supporting your project.
