Bayer Fund America's Farmers Grow Communities

Thanks to farmers, Bayer Fund has been able to award more than $65 million to thousands of rural nonprofits, ag youth organizations and schools across the country through the America’s Farmers programs. We know that these funds help rural communities be resilient and thrive – and that they are needed now more than ever.  

We have reimagined the America’s Farmers programs, streamlining our efforts into one signature program: Grow Communities. Through this process, we’ve made it easier than ever for schools to receive grant money. Here’s how it works: 

  • Now through Nov. 1, farmers enroll in Grow Communities. 

  • Winning farmers are announced in January 2023. They will have the opportunity to direct $5,000 to an eligible school STEM program or nonprofit of their choice.  

  • If your school is selected by a winning farmer, you will be contacted! Funds must be used for STEM programming, but there are no additional grant applications or reviews to receive the money. 

Now until November 1, farmers can enroll in Grow Communities, and winners will be announced in January 2023. Farmers can enter for a chance to win online at or by calling 1-877-267-3332 toll-free.
