Philanthropic Support Guidelines

At Bayer, we forge community partnerships with charitable organizations whose needs are among the greatest, and we serve the community in areas such as health, wellness, science, innovation and education.

Bayer welcomes proposals for corporate and/or business philanthropic support that meet the following criteria:

  • Serves and benefits Canadian communities
  • Has clearly defined and measurable goals and objectives

Please note that applications for corporate funding are reviewed by the Bayer Corporate Responsibility Committee.

Due to the large volume, requests are reviewed on a discretionary basis and we are not able to fund all applications that meet our guidelines.
