How to Apply
Global English [ Change Region ]

Thank you for your interest in partnering with The Mosaic Company and The Mosaic Company Foundation. Before applying for a grant, potential applicants are asked to review the complete guidelines PDF to ensure the proposal is within our focus areas, meets eligibility requirements and aligns with decision-making timeframes.

The Mosaic Company and The Mosaic Company Foundation have the same application process. Applicants should not specify from which entity they seek funding as Mosaic reserves the right to determine which entity makes the donation and which entity will be recognized for the gift. Applicants must be registered as a 501(c)(3) organization with the United States IRS, a charitable organization with the Canadian Revenue Agency, or an equivalent institutional registration. Applicants must be located in geographic areas surrounding Mosaic locations and offices, unless seeking a global or national partnership.

Mosaic has an on-line grant application system for organizations based in the U.S. and Canada. On rare occasion, we will invite internationally-based organizations to apply through this form. If you have been invited to apply, then please include the code that was provided to you. Otherwise, if you have an opportunity you are interested in presenting that may fit our focus areas of food and water in one of the countries where we have operations (India, China, Brazil), then please email us at
