Criteria For Giving

Our community support programme is overseen by a committee which aims to be professional, sympathetic, impartial and systematic. That must include a firm and clear statement of what we can and cannot support, subject to available funds and the balance of our existing community work.

We support activities which enhance local quality of life through:


  • the environment

  • community care

  • culture and the arts

  • education

  • projects in line with our purpose

  • projects benefiting groups and not individuals


 We are unable to support:


  • individuals rather than group activities

  • religious, political or racially aligned movements

  • projects or activities bridging a gap in government or local authority funding

  • sporting or recreational activities unless closely associated to Bayer

  • entries in log books, year books or support advertising

  • projects of a local nature which are outside key locations of Berkshire, Cambridge and Dublin

  • conferences, lectures, trips, respite breaks or holidays
