Improving Lives. Addressing Root Causes.

Monsanto Fund Report

The Monsanto Fund released its 2010-2011 Monsanto Fund Report in early November. The report contains several feature stories that showcase how the Monsanto Fund’s contributions have helped to improve lives by providing access to resources like agricultural training, water and fruits and vegetables. As we look back at our contributions over the last few years, one thing is clear:  we’ve accomplished a lot, but there is more to be done in farming communities and communities where our employees live and work.  To learn more about our projects, visit the entire Monsanto Fund Report.
