Community Giving: ADM Cares

For more than a century, the people of Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) have transformed crops into products that serve the vital needs of a growing world. Today, we’re one of the world’s largest agricultural processors and food ingredient providers, with more than 33,000 employees serving customers in more than 140 countries. With a global value chain that includes more than 470 crop procurement locations, 285 ingredient manufacturing facilities, 40 innovation centers and the world’s premier crop transportation network, we connect the harvest to the home, making products for food, animal feed, chemical and energy uses.

What Makes A Strong Community?

At ADM, we believe it’s 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, a social investment program that strives to make a positive difference in many of the communities where our 33,000 colleagues live and work.

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 many ways.
