Charitable giving

Cargill's charitable giving efforts reached more than $59 million in 59 countries for fiscal 2014

We help build vibrant and stable communities where we live and work. We support programs that provide long-term solutions, engage our employees and leverage their expertise, and provide opportunities to collaborate with others.

Our employees, businesses and community partners contribute to provide a meaningful impact in our communities. 

Cargill and our employees contribute in a number of ways:

  • Corporate giving
    Cargill provides corporate support to select regional, national and global nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that serve multiple communities in which we have a business presence. Our giving is directed within our focus areas of food security and nutrition, education and environmental stewardship.
  • Local community giving
    Cargill businesses, facilities and employee-led Cargill Cares Councils provide support for civic and charitable organizations and schools in their local communities.
  • Headquarters giving
    The Cargill Foundation supports rigorous education programs for K-12 in our headquarters communities of Minneapolis and its northern and western suburbs, and early childhood nutrition education programs for pre-K-grade 6 (ages 2-12).
  • Other ways we give
    Cargill and its employees and retirees give in a variety of ways including personal financial contributions and gifts to higher education.
