Community Investment

We don't just operate in communities, we become a part of them. It's important to us that we be good neighbors, and that means finding ways to support and enhance our communities in whatever ways we can.

Agrium works in partnership with stakeholders to be a good neighbor – protecting, growing and enriching the communities in which we operate. We see ourselves as residents, not tenants, and support is just one of the ways we're proud to give back. We focus that support on the following four areas:

  • Youth
  • Environment
  • Civic, Arts & Culture
  • Health & Wellness

Agrium is a firm proponent of collaborating with others to amplify our efforts. As we achieve initial successes, we often engage other organizations in partnerships that create shared value.

Our employee donation-matching program also provides the opportunity to enlist Agrium’s support of causes to which employees have financially or otherwise contributed. We support the charitable causes that are important to our employees by matching donations up to $300. It not only results in donations to highly impactful organizations, but employees can also be satisfied to know that their company cares about what matters to them.

Our extensive retail network in North America provides a valuable connection to the customers who use our products and to the communities where we operate. When a retail facility chooses to participate in the Community Outreach Program, all employees volunteer and receive one day’s pay for one day of labor. During 2014-2015, more than 1,250 Agrium employees completed 182 outreach projects.

Donation Application Process

Agrium's Local Community Investment Program supports charities and initiatives in the communities where we operate. Specifically targeted to meet the unique needs of each community, this program is managed by Agrium employees who work, live and play in these communities. 

Local efforts are complemented by Agrium's Global Community Investment Program. This program is often collaborative and supports charities or projects that are broader in scope, affecting multiple Agrium communities, often with a national impact. 

You can apply to the Agrium community program through the Agrium Community Investment Program Application.

Some causes are not eligible for contributions in accordance with Agrium’s current guidelines. For more details about non-eligible causes, click here.
