Bayer giving $1.2 million to fund Muny, Lift for Life Academy upgrades

Nov 14, 2018

From staff reports A rendering shows improvements at the Muny including "shells" on each side of the stage, a new light bridge across the stage and a new pair of digital screens onstage. The shells, made of glass fiber reinforced concrete, can be colored with LED lighting. Handout Bayer announced grants of $1.2 million Wednesday to fund construction and renovation projects by two St. Louis nonprofits. Bayer, the German life sciences company that acquired Creve Coeur-based Monsanto earlier this year, said it will give The Muny $1 million over five years to support the outdoor theater  Second Century Capital Campaign improvements . Those improvements include a rebuild of the theater’s stage, maintenance and upkeep of The Muny's 100-year-old campus in Forest Park. The campaign announced earlier this year is seeking to raise $100 million for extensive improvements to the facility. Separately, Bayer is giving a $246,000 grant to Lift for Life Academy to support the school’s 'Fulfilling Our Promise' construction campaign to add six new science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) classrooms to the academy’s new high school wing. Lift for Life is an independent charter school for grades 6-12 at 1731 S. Broadway in south St. Louis. Both The Muny and Lift for Life Academy plan to name a room or area of their projects after Bayer. Following its acquisition of Monsanto, St. Louis became Bayer’s North American headquarters. "We are eager and honored to support civic projects that promote the arts, digital innovation and STEM-based learning opportunities,” Al Mitchell, Bayer’s Vice President of Community Engagement, said in a statement. “These grants represent Bayer’s ongoing commitment to assist organizations in the communities where our employees and customers live and work. The ultimate impact of these St. Louis organizations will last far beyond the buildings that we’re improving together.” Business Briefing from St. Louis Post-Dispatch Make it your business.
