Since launching the Mosaic Employee Giving Program (MEGP) in February, our employees have shown that their commitment to their local communities runs deep.
The program, which combines the generosity of employees’ personal contributions and volunteering, along with the matching grants, is building stronger communities where we live, work and raise families. Employees are empowered to give back through financial contributions and/or volunteer time and can leverage The Mosaic Company Foundation matching those contributions up to $2,000 per employee per year.
This year employees and their families rose to the challenge and helped us exceed our ambitious targets, and we could not be prouder. Through the MEGP, our employees have supported more than 600 organizations across North America with over 4,043 volunteer hours and $115,000 in financial contributions resulting in matched contributions of $230,000 to local organizations.
Giving Back in 2021
Here’s a glimpse into some of the incredible work our employees have done in their local communities this year:
Zack Morris’ love for scuba diving started when he was just 12 years old after experiencing the beauty and thrill of snorkeling in Tampa Bay, the Nature Coast and the Florida Keys – a shared interest with his mom, Mosaic Superintendent Permitting and Reclamation Compliance, Laura Morris. When the duo stumbled upon a SCUBAnauts International (SNI) booth at St. Petersburg’s annual Marine Quest event, they knew it was the perfect way to satisfy their love for diving and shared passion for volunteerism.

For Mosaic’s Senior Director, Digital Strategy, Chris Hagemo, volunteering in his local community means more than just lending a helping hand to those in need. It’s watching his three kids, aged five, eight and nine, develop a love for volunteering while addressing hunger in their backyard. Learn how they are making an impact on their local community here.
Broward Elementary Employee Volunteers
As part of the Tackling Hunger fueled by Mosaic partnership with the Tampa Bay Bucs, Mosaic volunteers also tackled some overgrown gardens to support Broward Elementary – the location of the first pantry.
Our North American Leadership Team helped wrap-up 2021 by sharing how they gave back and thanked employees for doing the same.
“The Mosaic Employee Giving Program gives employs the flexibility to invest time and resources into organizations they are passionate about and where they feel they can make the maximum value contributions,” shares Joe Wolf, Vice President, Concentrates – North America.

“I want to thank our employees for making the program a success in 2021,” said Sarah Fedorchuk, Mosaic’s Vice President of Government and Public Affairs – North America, “I look forward to seeing what our employees do in 2022.
Whether through in-person or virtual volunteer efforts, or by providing monetary support to the organizations that mean the most to us, we look forward to doing our part in making the communities where we operate brighter by giving back in 2022.
