Yara North America Announces Contributions to Numerous Nonprofit Organizations

Food scarcity, emergency services, health and wellness, sustainability and diversity, equity and inclusion-focused initiatives to benefit

Tampa, Florida (Feb 1, 2023) — Yara North America has announced that a variety of contributions have been made to local and national organizations in the US, Canada and Trinidad centered around the company’s ambition to “Grow a Nature-Positive Food Future” through climate neutrality, regenerative farming, and improved livelihoods and prosperity. Recipients of the contributions, which total more than $385,000 USD, include Feeding Tampa Bay, Habitat for Humanity, No Kid Hungry, National Women in Agriculture, Hospitals of Regina, The Red Cross, and many others in the local communities in which Yara North America serves in the U.S. and Canada. In Trinidad, support and donations were extended to partners including Teachers for Autism, and Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society.

These organizations are all doing amazing and important work related to critical causes such as the fight against food scarcity, supporting diversity, equity and inclusion in agriculture, assisting those impacted by hurricane Ian, education, and many more,” said Geraldo Mattioli, SVP of Yara North America. “We are very pleased to be able to give back and support their efforts both nationally as well as locally in the communities in which we operate.

As part of the selection process, Yara North America employees had the opportunity to nominate and vote for charitable organizations they would like the company to support.

"Not knowing where your next meal will come from is a terrifying feeling, but we know lack of food is just a symptom of the overall struggle our neighbors are experiencing. Thank you to those who nominated each of us and above all to Yara for your generosity and support that addresses the many opportunities our organizations collectively offer to lift our neighbors toward a life of health and capability," said Thomas Mantz, President and CEO, Feeding Tampa Bay.
