Commitment and Sustainability

Community

Berkshire Community Foundation

The Berkshire Community Foundation provides advice, distributes grants and raises the profile of local charities and community groups addressing identified need across Berkshire.

Bayer works with the Foundation to use their local knowledge to connect our staff to the groups and communities they want to help, primarily through volunteering opportunities and, as a Business Philanthropy Club member, making sure our donations are effective and bring the greatest benefit to those most in need.
