Our Mission

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 around the world.

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.

As the philanthropic arm of Monsanto, we’re focused on one goal – strengthening both farming communities and the communities where we live and work.

We do this by:

  • 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
  • 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

We are committed to improving lives in farming communities around the world. The problems are common, but the solutions are as varied as the many regions where our employees live and work.
