US: Syngenta grants available for education, hunger relief

Nonprofits with projects that promote agricultural and science education or help relieve hunger are eligible for grants of up to $10,000 through the Syngenta Community Grant Program. Created in 2002, the program supports charitable organizations, schools and government agencies. Grants are available in areas near Syngenta’s three largest U.S. sites:
  • Minnetonka, Minnesota
  • Greensboro, North Carolina
  • Research Triangle Park, North Carolina
Through its Community Grant Program, Syngenta focuses corporate giving on local initiatives that support important community needs, including: agriculture and/or STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) education; hunger relief; and water and land conservation. The program empowers Syngenta employees to select and distribute funds to local nonprofit organizations.



The program also supports The Good Growth Plan, Syngenta’s strategy to help sustainably address the global food security challenge by 2020. The Syngenta Community Grant Program is a way to bring The Good Growth Plan to life, by recognizing and supporting local organizations that share Syngenta’s passion for sustainably feeding a hungry world.

Applications for the Syngenta Community Grant Program are being accepted through Sept. 29, 2017, for the 2018 grant year. All applications are reviewed by a Syngenta employee team, which selects recipients based on innovative approaches and solutions, long-term impact and the most efficient use of funds. Those interested can find more information as well as the 2018 application here.
