Transforming Lives in Farming Communities
AGCO Corporation launched the AGCO Agriculture Foundation (AAF) in 2018 with one goal in mind: ending hunger globally.
Impact-driven agricultural initiatives for a food-secure world
In our three key focus areas, the foundation takes a holistic approach to Zero Hunger by addressing nutrition and sustainable food systems, quality agricultural education, research and innovation, community and rural development.
As the world’s food systems change, the AAF is committed to making an impact locally and globally. Through our farmer-centric approach, we are dedicated to elevating farming communities to ensure that no one is left behind. The AGCO Agriculture Foundation is positioned as a thought leader on corporate philanthropy and shared value creation through support of our AGCO purpose and Farmer-First strategy. The AGCO Agriculture Foundation is a testament to AGCO’s farmer-focused solutions to sustainably feed our world.
