ADM Cares – Strong Roots, Strong Communities, Strong Bonds
$10.7 million = Total contributions provided by ADM in 2015 through ADM Cares, a social investment program that strives to make a positive difference in the communities where our nearly 32,300 colleagues live and work.

At ADM, we believe a strong community is made up of a combination of factors: great schools, effective social services, clean air and water, vibrant parks and recreation areas, active citizen involvement, and a spirit of local pride. That’s why we created ADM Cares.
Through targeted grants to causes and organizations that help advance the social, economic, educational, environmental and agricultural interests of cities and towns across the U.S. and around the world, ADM Cares is serving vital needs in our communities, every day, in a variety of ways. The ADM Cares team evaluates projects submitted for funding to ensure they meet eligibility criteria, such as initiatives that support safe, responsible and environmentally sound agricultural practices in critical growing regions around the world.
ADM Cares comprises three distinct focus areas: Strong Roots, which supports the responsible development of agriculture; Strong Communities, which emphasizes improving the quality of life in ADM communities; and Strong Bonds, which promotes employee giving and volunteer activities.
ADM Cares applications are accepted March 1 - May 31 and September 1 - November 30. Visit www.adm.com/applyforfunding to complete an online application.
