Viterra Corporate Sponsorship Application
Viterra is committed to contributing to positive social outcomes in the communities where we have operations and our employees live, work and play through community development. In order to align these positive outcomes with business value, we provide support in the following four areas:
1) Promoting sports and recreation in rural communities with a strong focus on youth
We believe in providing sports and recreation opportunities to youth in rural communities where opportunities may not be as readily available. By supporting local sports groups, we hope to make sports accessible to youth in these communities
2) Agricultural education, environment and safety
As more and more children are removed and disconnected from the ag community, we support programs that aim to bridge this gap and improve awareness and understanding. We also fund initiatives that support and inspire rural youth to become leaders in their communities and in the ag industry.
Safety is a top priority at Viterra. We provide and support education and training initiatives within the industry to empower our customers. We‘re committed to supporting organizations that make safety a top priority through education, prevention, and life-saving rescue services.
We care about the environment, focusing on initiatives that support for environmental care and preservation.
3) Health and wellness
Healthy people are productive people, so we support a number of different organizations to help promote overall good health and well-being. Because this can cover so many different programs and initiatives, we focus our efforts on children’s hospitals and neonatal care, the United Way, the Red Cross, cancer research, local food banks, and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
4) Community support
We support the communities where our colleagues and customers live and work, focusing on initiatives that support the development of these communities. This includes initiatives such as ice and board sponsorships in arenas, curling rinks, ball diamonds, playgrounds, program sponsorships for tournaments, and more.
