The Bayer Rural Community Arts Education Program is a partnership initiative that strengthens rural communities through the arts. Funding from the program brings artists and entertainers into rural classrooms and performance venues so people of all ages living in counties surrounding the St. Louis metropolitan area have meaningful access to the arts.  The goal of the Bayer Rural Community Arts Education Program is to ensure that the arts remain accessible to all.

The Bayer Fund, the philanthropic arm of Bayer, focuses on strengthening the communities where Bayer customers and employees live and work.
