The Monsanto Fund works to substantially and meaningfully improve people’s lives around the world.
As the philanthropic arm of Monsanto, they are focused on one goal – strengthening both farming communities and the communities where they live and work.
Eligible organizations include public charities incorporated in U.S. and working in a foreign country, indigenous public charities, units of government, private schools primarily serving an economically disadvantaged population, and private hospitals primarily serving an economically disadvantaged population.
The Monsanto Fund accepts grant proposals for programs outside of the U.S. in the following areas:
  1. Providing basic education support designed to improve education in farming communities around the world, including supporting schools, libraries, science centers, farmer training programs and academic programs that enrich or supplement school programs
  2. Meeting critical needs in communities by supporting nonprofit organizations that help with things such as food security, sanitation, access to clean water, public safety and various other local needs
  3. Single grant requests must be for at least US $25,000.
Beyond that requirement, the grant sizes will vary by region.
Each region has an allocation of funding and will decide how many and the maximum size grants they will make in their country.
