Charitable Contributions

Attention charitable contributions grant seekers:

Bayer's Charitable Contribution Request process, including this website, is now closed.
It is scheduled to re-open by the end of January 2015.
A notice will be posted on this website once it re-opens.

Please note the following important guidelines for 2015 contribution requests:

Charitable Contributions Initiation

  • If your event is less than 45 days from the receipt date of your completed application (including all supporting documentation), your charitable contribution request may not be accepted or processed.
  • The charitable contribution request must be submitted by a representative of the organization which is seeking the charitable contribution funding

Charitable Contribution Submission

  • Required Documentation

    For all requests:
    • Completed application
    • Signed letter of request, on organization letterhead, clearly specifying how the funding will be used
    • List of current members of the organization’s Board of Directors
    • W-9 form (Note ONLY the December 2014 Version of the IRS W-9 Form will be accepted and the address MUST match the mailing address indicated on the application).
    • IRS 501c3 determination letter or other tax-exempt documentation.
    • Change of address letter on organization letterhead (required only if you checked "New Organization Address" in the application)

    For programs, activities or events:
    • Program objectives and agenda
    • Detailed line item budget for the program, activity or event.

    • Contribution requests cannot include promotional display opportunities. Requests that include promotional display opportunities will be declined.

    Failure to provide this completed information at least 45 days prior to the event date will result in the request not being processed.

Charitable Contribution Review

  • Review times vary from request to request, however the general guidance is 8-10 weeks. You can assist with minimizing the review timeline by providing complete and accurate documentation in a timely manner. (see above "Required Documentation ")
  • The Charitable Contribution Review committee will thoroughly review each request within 8-10 weeks of receiving the completed application packet.

Charitable Contribution Status

  • You will receive written and/or email notification from the review committee’s decision. Please note, if you submitted an application 8-10 weeks prior to the date of your event, your notification of approval or denial may be received close to the date of the event.
  • Please do not consider any request approved until you have received written documentation from the Bayer Charitable Contribution Review Committee approving your contribution request.
