Thank you for your interest in partnering with Nutrien to help grow your community. Outlined below are the application guidelines, including eligibility. Please be sure to read the guidelines completely before applying to ensure your project is aligned with our focus areas and desired results.
We believe the best approach for meaningful impact in our communities is focused, which is why we direct our community investment funds where we can most effectively leverage our unique role and competencies. Community investment is concentrated to the areas that Nutrien is already engaged in through business. These focus areas reflect our commitment to the pursuit of sustainable agriculture, environmental stewardship, diversity and inclusion within our industry and communities that are safe and inclusive.
All Nutrien sites, offices and retail branches use common assessment guidelines, central governance, and company-wide systems for administration and tracking. Local representatives and committees assess donation requests for their location because we believe that people who live and work in the area best understand the unique needs of their community.
Requests are reviewed regularly throughout the year. The review and response time may take up to 12 weeks, so please allow as much time as possible between the submission date, and when a response is required. All requests for Nutrien funding, including in-kind donations, must be submitted online.
To help us understand your request and organization, Nutrien also welcomes information about community engagement or employee volunteer opportunities, success stories and testimonials, or examples of collaboration with other organizations.
