Pioneer Giving

For more than 85 years, DuPont Pioneer has been working to improve the lives of farm families and rural communities. As the first company to research, develop and sell hybrid seed corn in 1926, our focus was helping farmers increase productivity of corn to support their families, invest in their farms and build stronger rural communities. Many things have changed in eight decades, but our focus is still the same: helping farmers be more productive, and supporting the communities in which our employees and customers live and work.

Our Pioneer Giving program works to improve food security by advancing agriculture through science, education, and innovation. We are also committed to enhancing the quality of life for farmers and their communities globally.

Pioneer sales representatives and business teams are important parts of their communities, so the Pioneer Giving process begins with them. Eligible community organizations include local schools, public charities and 501c3 organizations.

Pioneer’s Giving Program provides up to $5,000 for a project or program which focuses on the following:

  1. Food Security. We're faced with ensuring food security for millions of people today who don’t know where their next meal will come from, and working toward a future of feeding 9 billion people around the world by 2050.

    Food security support projects include school to home backpack meal programs, food banks, rural meal delivery, congregate meal programs, meals on wheels programs, community gardens.

    Program examples include:
  2. Education Programs. Education — especially agriculture and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) — is the key to continuing advancements required in agriculture. Increasing productivity, preserving natural resources, developing healthier plants, oils and animals … it will take a new generation of researchers, agronomists, scientists and farmers to meet lofty goals.

    Program examples include:
  3. Community Betterment. We support programs and projects that create sustainable infrastructure to benefit communities in which our employees and customers live and work. First responders, including volunteer fire departments, are essential to the health and safety of many rural communities, so Pioneer has established several programs to provide necessary equipment and support.

    Program examples include:
